Is "make rpm-pkg" and "make binrpm-pkg" same?

Hi, Anuz

Thanks for your help. It turns out that "build source RPM package" means 
it will make a SRPM package in path/to/rpmbuild/SRPM.

It is a distro specified question. I don't know it until I have a basic 
understand of RPM packages. In fact, there is a comment in 

# The rpm target generates two rpm files:
# /usr/src/packages/SRPMS/kernel-2.6.7rc2-1.src.rpm
# /usr/src/packages/RPMS/i386/kernel-2.6.7rc2-1.<arch>.rpm

Sorry for did not notice it at the first time.
