List the files that are contained within either k_deflt or k_athlon that are
located on your installation medium -- CD.DVD,etc......

This should give you an idea what files are needed. It may be easier to dump
the contents from the rpm's into a directory and just use the spec file with
a few minimal alterations.

Then build till your hearts content! ;)
