yum-repos seems to be easy to create,
cd into the directory where you have your rpms and execute "yum-arch ."

# yum-arch
yum-arch [-v] [-z] [-l] [-c] [-n] [-d] [-q] [-vv] (path of dir where

   -v  = more verbose output
   -vv = even more verbose output
   -n  = don't generate headers
   -c  = check pkgs with gpg and md5 checksums - cannot be used with -n
   -z  = gzip compress the headers [default, will be deprecated as an
   -l  = use symlinks as valid rpms when building headers
   -q  = make the display more quiet

# grep -1 test-local /etc/yum.conf
