Oh RPMs, ok. Go over to
and pick up the source tarballs and the RPM SPEC files as a starting
point. Unless I've missed something you should be able to recreate
the binary tools found on the CD with what is there. Put the soure tars
(and patches) in /usr/src/packages/SOURCES and the SPECS in, well, SPECS.
then use rpm -ba -vv to build the binary packages.
