I am building the rpm as a user called xxx in one m/c .After building the rpm,i want to install the binary rpm in a different m/c as a non -root user.If i want to do this,should i have the same user xxx in the destination m/c also? Can somebody help me out?

You can build the rpm as anyone, you set the final ownership in the %files section of your spec. If that owner doesn't exist on the new install machine, you can add the owner to the new machine by including a suitable useradd(1) command in a %pre section. Since it's root (with or without sudo) who has to install the rpm anyway, that's all possible - and it does work ;)
