You can then "assemble" it with

rpmbuild -bp /usr/src/packages/SPECS/<spec file>

which will unpack the tar ball and apply the patches
in /usr/src/packages/BUILD/<package name>

Alternatively, if all you're wanting to do is rebuild them, you don't
need to "install" it. All you need to do is use:

rpmbuild --rebuild <source package>

and, as long as the requirements are satisfied for building, it will be
rebuilt for the system it is built upon.
