What does it output when trying to build the first RPM?
It is not managing to build the RPM's for some reason, so it cannot then
install them.
You cannot directly "rpm -i" each of the RPM's as they are SRPM's which
have to be built into RPM's first (this is the only way in which they can
be made portable across different versions of RedHat).
