how to rebuild from src.rpm while patching the Makefile



  it's been a while since i've had to mess with the internals of
a src.rpm, so i just want to clarify how to do this the approved way.

  i want to install the NVIDIA kernel src rpm, then do the normal
"prep" step, *then* apply some patches to the makefile, *then* 
complete the build process, so that the NVIDIA modules will work
with the 2.5 kernel.

  as i see it, i should

1) do a normal install of the src rpm
2) wander into /usr/src/redhat/SPECS and do a

  # rpmbuild -bp NVIDIA.spec

3) apply my patches in the apropriate source directory

  ... and then ... is there a single rpmbuild command to 
resume the build from there?  or do i do an explicit "make"
to finish things off?

  recommendations appreciated.
