well to my knowledge rpmbuild is still packed with fedora so the following should be able to get your by :

rpmbuild --rebuild nameofpackage.src.rpm
and since i remember from redhat that the default install directory from that command is /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES i assume you would just replace redhat with fedora, and you will be able to find the extracted source in there...

and if this isn't the case i am sure someone will enlighten us with a correction..
