Thanks for the tip; however, I'm still having problems.  That page 
suggests that I create a .rpmrc file with a line like

topdir: /u/tchow/mysubdirectory

in it.  But when I do that, I get an error:

% rpmbuild --rebuild gnubg.rpm
error: bad option 'topdir' at /u/tchow/.rpmrc:1
Installing gnubg.rpm
error: cannot write to %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
error: gnubg.rpm cannot be installed
