I'm trying to get gaim 2.0 beta3 working but there's no guifications for that version. there's gaim-guifications-2.13-0.beta3.src.rpm on their page but how can I build an rpm from it and then install it?

If you need to change how the rpm is built, you can install the src.rpm and edit the spec. THis is more complicated though, see www.rpm.org/max-rpm/ for a good book on all things rpm.
