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
