The warning is common.
You're packaging as root? It's easy to set up to package as a mortal. For a
single-user workstation, just chown /usr/src/redhat to the user you want to
build as. It's only slightly more complicated to set up users to package in
their own home directories. (Look at the %_topdir macro in
/usr/lib/rpm/macros, and override it in ~/.rpmmacros.)
