I think you have misidentified your problem.

It's very easy to use the .src.rpm from PGDG to recreate a binary RPMs
in Mandrakelinux.  In fact I used to do that back when I used Mandrake,
not many months ago.  You just need to install the rpm-build package and
follow the standard Mandrake instructions for building packages.  See
the Cooker documentation on that.

You have to install zlib-devel and some readline devel package in order
to compile cleanly, anyway.
