RE: How do I update ONLY GLib?

Ok, that sounds like an interesting possibility, but I am something of a
neophyte when it comes to compiling system "stuff".  I DO know how to
install rpms anyway.  My assumption from the src.rpm name is that it is
source only files and after installing it there is a build step, but:
1. What is the "spec" file?,
2. How do I "inform" the build process where my new glib files are?, and
3. What is the build syntax?

Probably pretty basic questions, but I really do NOT want to screw up my
system :-).

I don't use RHEL, but looking at src.rpm of the RHEL4 glib2
package, changing Version in the spec file and rebuiling the
rpm with the new glib tarball should be sufficient.
