[root fastcat ~]# rpmbuild -bp --target i686 kernel-2.6.8-1.521.src.rpm
Building target platforms: i686
Building for target i686
error: File /root/kernel-2.6.8-1.521.src.rpm does not appear to be a specfile.

:-(

Also this method does not seem to give the opportunity to deliver a user patch 
before the compile?  I am trying to work with a Zydas1201-based USB Wifi 
device which has a quirk.  This project

http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=94356

issues a very small patch to hub.c in the kernel

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/linux-lc100020/zd1201/2.6.8.1-usb-broken-discriptor.diff?rev=1.1

without which the device will not accept a USB address.

Please don't take this as Yet Another Flame, but I was able to do this with 
success back in the kernel-sourcecode days.  Maybe a README in the .src RPM 
with some tips would be a help to puzzled people.
