The easy way:
rpmbuild --rebuild --force http://pmrb.free.fr/texlive/texlive.spm
Step by step:
- install http://pmrb.free.fr/texlive/texlive.spm (for example with the command
rpm -i http://pmrb.free.fr/texlive/texlive.spm)
- edit the spec-file, the source-files and the patch-files as you like
- build the binary package:
rpmbuild -bb --force texlive.spec
- the installation of this binary package should have been done automatically in the previous step, if not:
rpm -Uvh texlive-X-Y.ARCH.rpm
- You may also need to add the PREFIX/bin and PREFIX/ruby-bin directories to your path (export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texexec/bin). You should probably put this in a bashrc file so it happens on system boot.
- You may need to build the format files. (texexec --make --all)
You need about 2Gb of disk space available. The entire texlive system (about 1.5GB) will be downloaded to /tmp and then moved to /usr/src/packages. From there an installable RPM will be built. This could take a few hours depending on the speed of your machine and your connection to the internet.

You will be downloading indirectly from the texlive development tree. This works well if the tree is in a stable state. If not, you will have to try again after the developers check in fixes. You can ask questions on the tex-live mailing list or directly to Peter (pmrb at free.fr).
