First, set a you build enviroment ( never, never, never build a rpm package how root ):

mkdir -p ~/rpmbuild/{BUILD,RPMS,SOURCES,SPECS,SRPMS}

Now, create your macro definition to your build path:

echo "%_topdir /home/`echo $USER`/rpmbuild" > ~/.rpmmacros

To rebuild your own rpm for Fedora, download the last package version to src.rpm from: http://richzendy.org/repo/kiwix/

Also you must have installed the unac package (libunac) package, download and install:

rpm -ivh http://richzendy.org/repo/kiwix/unac-1.7.0-1.i386.rpm

now try this:

rpmbuild --rebuild kiwix-1.9.svn_09122009-1.src.rpm

Your can find the rpm package built to you in ~/rpmbuild/RPMS

Rebuild from .spec file

If you know how to deal with .spec file and want to built a kiwix rpm with others options, you have to:

unpack a RMP package:

rpm2cpio kiwix-1.9.svn_09122009-1.src.rpm | cpio -idmv

move the extracted files in your build enviroment like following:

mv kiwix-1.9.svn_09122009.tar.gz ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
mv kiwix.spec ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/

edit and modify the .spec file, and rebuild the RPM:

rpmbuild -ba ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/kiwix.spec
