This is pretty good document 

Practically you need to install packages mentioned in the 
section 2 (sudo yum install @development fedora-packager; you 
better have EPEL switched on as well, see 

Then you run (as normal user)

cd rpmbuild
(copy .spec file to ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/ and tarball and all 
patches to ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES)
rpmbuild -ba SPECS/xiphos.spec
(install all missed dependencies, and repeat)


you can just install packages from 
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=629811, and 
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=629754 (the 
last one might be available in repos already) and let me know 
what's broken.
