Just edit the spec file in /usr/src/redhad/SPECS, then while remaining in the
SPECS dierctory run rpmbuild -bb <filename>.spec instead of on the
original .src.rpm.

Do you know what method is being used to search for phpize by default?  There
may be a cleaner way to do it.

either it's likely because you did not make yourself clear or I misunderstood
part of what you were asking.  Feel free to holler and yell though if you
like. :)
