That _installs_ the source package, not build it as you intended. Read
the RPM manual:

rpm --rebuild python-ctypes-0.9.1-1.rf.src.rpm

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
