Although building your own packages is ‘quite’ easy, you need to create a spec file and maybe rename your source dir.
Getting someones src rpm is a good intro but I find, in general, the spec files included are gravely complicated. They need not be. There are a number of rpm building tutorials.
For me I do not bother building rpm for mythtv (although I do for other packages), a simple make install does all.
