How to rebuild rpms with better options?


How can I rebuild rpms with improved options? Specifically I would like to rebuild firefox, thunderbird with i686 instead of i386. Anyone has experience with this?

Also if possible would like to build emacs with --with-gtk.

Thanks. It is slightly more useful than 'google rpm rebuild'.

I installed a emacs src rpm. How do I remove that? `rpm -qa` does not list source rpms. `rpm -e emacs-21.4-3.src` does not work either.

Installing source rpm only extract the spec files and the tar.gz files inside /usr/src/redhat.
spec file is located inside /usr/src/redhat/SPEC and the tar.gz file is inside /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES.
spec is the file that you will use to set the binary configuration.
I will suggest to install a rpmbuild inside your home directory following this tutorial so you won't have to touch /usr/src/redhat.
