By default, /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and /usr/src/redhat/SPECS.

That's a problem with the default root-rpmbuild-environment, because
the contents of several src.rpm packages share a common directory,
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES. I don't download src.rpms with up2date, and
I use a non-root rpmbuild environment, where every package has its
own single directory.

A ".spec" file contains RPM package config parameters and scripts
that specify how to build the binary package from the sources. A
spec file is fed to the "rpmbuild" command.
