'man rpmbuild' is full of info. Short way of doing it:

rpmbuild <rpm-src>.src.rpm

but you might want to add some flags to it depending on the situation.

for tar.gz you do

tar xzvf <tar-package>.tar.gz

and then enter the directory created and read the README for more!
Usually it is something like:

./configure
make
make install
