Here's a tutorial targeted at Fedora, but the instructions should still be 
mostly valid for other distros.

<http://www.g-loaded.eu/2006/04/05/how-to-build-rpm-packages-on-fedora/>

The important command there is rpmdev-setuptree.

If you've downloaded a tarball that supports building as an RPM, you can 
build it with:

rpmbuild -tb package.tar.gz

This extracts the first .spec file from the tarball and uses it to guide 
the RPM-building process.
