I was not looking at how to build an rpm in general
but the specific Apache 2.0.53, php 4.3.11 and openssl
0.9.7f rpms. Having built firefox & ttfonts rpms for
example i know the process but need the spec files.

I have indeed read the changelogs
(http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/CHANGES_2.0.53 ) and
note with concern that Apache 2.0.52 from fedora does
not cover those issues.
httpd-2.0.52-3.1.i386.rpm (latest update) was released
  12-Nov-2004 at 15:57  and does not include the
Apache 2.0.53 fixes.

Neither would php-4.3.10-3.2.i386.rpm released on
21-Dec-2004 at 13:54  contain the 31st March 2005
updates rated as critical. 

Perhaps you would like to elaborate further on your
"backporting claim".
