You can build your own RPM from what you compiled.

Distribute the binary or binaries, and/or libs accordingly. for your app to the other participating machines.
Or create an installer for it. (e.g. through self)
another option is to combine all the files for the program (inc. directories) as a .tar.bz2 or tar.gz file, and then copy it over, and extract it into the desired directory.

Well that's one way to read "(no rpm)". Another way is "How do I do it if I don't have an RPM?" I took it that way even though I saw they could have meant the other way. If they'd said "without building my own RPM" it would have been clear they meant what you thought rather than what I thought.
