That rpmbuild works within a system was always optional.
Patches are welcome btw.
Could you point the sources and documentation for the tools
you use to produce binary & source RPM's, *OTHER* than rpmbuild?

Can you not or don't you want to understand Marcus?

To build .rpm files, you need rpmbuild (or a very old rpm from before
rpmbuild was split off from rpm).

Separate "-devel" packages weren't widely used if at all
sometime before 10 or 9. It was assumed they were included by installing
the product.

Bulls...! There were plenty of devel packages on S.u.S.E 5.3, they
just were called differently, e.g. glib-devel was called glibdev,
others had just a 'd' added, e.g. lesstif / lesstifd.

And if you don't tell what exactly does not work and with what error-
messages, you're on your own. At least I won't help you.
