This is in response to the poster who didn't have enough space in /usr/src
to build his kernel rpm. 
To change the default location, one needs to copy
/usr/lib/rpm/macros to /root/.rpmmacros and then edit the latter file to
change the %{_topdir} variable. It is all explained in the file /usr/lib/rpm/macros.
