Actually, don't make it install there. Instead, set up a ~/.rpmmacros file
in your own home directory as described at:
<http://www.rpm.org/hintskinks/buildtree/>

Then, install the source RPM *not as root*, and build it in your own
account. 

As others have said, please reference earlier discussion on this. If you
need help setting up the buildroot, e-mail me off-list.
