Ewww, checkinstall is _not_ recommended¹ (and never was by anyone
worth listening to as far as I am concerned).

There is a nice document on the Fedora wiki describing the process:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_an_RPM_package

¹ One of the problems with checkinstall (as of the last time I
remember looking at it) was that it wants to be run with root
privileges.  One of the most important rules in rpm packaging is:
NEVER BUILD PACKAGES AS ROOT.
