I'm having a problem installing a source rpm - is this the correct way to do it?

[root@machine sysconfig]# rpm -ivv tcpdump-4.0.0-3.20090921gitdf3cb4.1.el6.src.rpm
D: ============== tcpdump-4.0.0-3.20090921gitdf3cb4.1.el6.src.rpm
D: loading keyring from pubkeys in /var/lib/rpm/pubkeys/*.key
D: couldn't find any keys in /var/lib/rpm/pubkeys/*.key
D: loading keyring from rpmdb
D: opening  db environment /var/lib/rpm cdb:mpool:joinenv
