I do "rm rpms/SOURCES/*" before the "install the srpm for ..." step.
My ~/.rpmmacros is this:

%_topdir        /q/zaitcev/rpms
%_packager      Pete Zaitcev <zaitcev yahoo com>

Some run Mike Harris' .rpmmacros, which allows to preserve sets
of sources:

%_topdir        /q/zaitcev/rpms
%_packager      Pete Zaitcev <zaitcev yahoo com>
%_sourcedir     %{_topdir}/SOURCES/%{name}-%{version}
%_specdir       %{_sourcedir}

In that case, "rm -rf rpms/SOURCES/kernel-whatever" is the answer.

But the main point is to do the cleanup before installing an SRPM,
not once you're done playing. You'll never remember doing the cleanup
if you postpone it.
