you have to have two dashes in front of the "target" and "rebuild" not just
one. and it should look exactly as follows:
rpm --target=i686 --rebuild kdebase-3.1.1-0.8x.src.rpm
You could find out where the binaries and such should go and redirect the out
put of the command above to that location by adding "--relocate
/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i686=<NEW_OUTPUT_DIR>" this could be /usr/local/kde3 or
/opt/kde3 or whatever destination RedHat would have had for the files.
But I would suggest downloading the non-source rpm which should look something
like kdebase-3.1.1-0.8x.rpm I would imagine that this is what you intend
right? Or are you wanting to manually copy all the binaries to the right
