  I guess you are missing the fact that rpm can work out of a
(compressed) tarball, run "rpm -ta foo.tar.gz" and it will
extract a .spec from it and use this to then build all the rpms
out (assuming you don't need patches from the spec file). Very
convenient and what "make rpm" does. You need to run autogen on
a checkout for this. But you can run it directly from any of the
libvirt-xxx.tar.gz that end up as release or provided hourly as
git snapshots.
