Nope; if you "rpmbuild --rebuild" a src.rpm package you'll just get the
packages built on your system, no new src.rpm. It would be equivalent to
"rpmbuild -bb specfile". If you do "rpmbuild -ba specfile" you'll
get a new
src.rpm but unless you've edited the specfile, it won't have any significant
differences to the src.rpm you started with.
I assume that, since rpmbuild is run against the src.rpm file, the src.rpm
file doesn't get installed thereby splitting off the .spec file. Is this
