well nearly, I believe /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/ isn't writable for normal 
users! you need to build rpm's as a normal user ie in your own space. I
installed rpmdevtools-5.3-1.fc6 which will create the build directory for you 
in your home dir with 'rpmdev-setuptree' or do it manually.

rpmbuild -ba rpmbuild/SPECS/mgetty.spec will give you the original in the RPMS 
dir. also I installed rpm-build
