You've been slightly mislead here, not your fault ;-)
With version 8, Red Hat in their wisdom (?) decided to remove
--rebuild (and a few others) from the command 'rpm'. It now needs to
be invoked like this:
rpmbuild --rebuild filename.of.your.src.rpm
Now, if you still have som stamina left you might want to check out
the project which builds KDE packages for Red Hat, and which utilises
apt-rpm to let you install it. No more downloading of separate rpms
and fiddling with dependencies.
If you install apt-rpm, you'll never look back :-)
