rpmbuild -ba --define "fedorakmod 1" \

	     --define "build_userspace 0" \
	     --define "osvers el5" \

will build a kernel module for the currently running kernel.

You don't need signed rpms for yum, certainly not in RHEL. It will  
tell you that it's installing an unsigned RPM, but will happily go
