Which I want to install in the rpm build root in my home directory (so
it is not in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES):

drwxrwxr-x   7 rlc  rlc       4096 Jan  5 00:36 rpmbuild
-rw-rw-r--   1 rlc  rlc        135 Jan  5 00:36 .rpmmacros

For a kernel build, does doing this make sense? Or should I be
installing to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and /usr/src/redhat/SPECS?

Since you have the rpmbuild stuff set up, something like:

    $ rpmbuild --recompile -bp --target i6867 kernel-2.6.14-1.1656_FC4.src.rpm

will install the source.  --rebuild or --recompile are needed in order to
work from a src.rpm rather than a specfile.

How does one use a custom config with rebuild? I need to turn on a
bunch of things (moxa driver for instance).
