Ah, I didn't realize you were hitting the BuildRequire of the RPM.
Instead of directly rebuilding the source RPM, you could install it,
change the "popt-devel" in rsync-matt.spec to "popt" to reflect the way
CentOS organizes the packages, and build with "rpmbuild -bb
PATH/TO/rsync-matt.spec".  Alternatively, you could uninstall the CentOS
popt and instead install the Fedora popt and popt-devel:
