"Furthermore, the .spec file should be removed from the tarball as
well.  It has NEVER been useful for Red Hat or Fedora, and it doesn't
reflect the reality of any other RPM based distribution either." - Warren

The rpmbuild stuff was recently removed because of this:

It's removal was based at least in part on a belief that it was not
actually usable for anybody.  You could take it up with the dev list,
particularly if you're up for maintaining it in a way that's useful for
the major rpm platforms.  Either way you probably want to talk to Warren
Togami, the resident RedHat guy.

I'd like to see it included, but nobody was willing to maintain it.

You should be able to easily copy the relevant files from the 3.3.1
tarball, if they worked for you.
