I checked my directories in /usr/src/packages/ and found that
SOURCES has several files. These files are not only source
tar.gz files but text files too. How could they get there? Simple
compilation (make;make install) could cause that? Or rpmbuild
--rebuild might have put them there?
As you said they are text files, you should check the contents of them.
They could be patches to the tarbols. There is a BUILD directory that
is used to build the rpm. All 'build' files go there.
