[lug] RPM System Package

I'm thinking about building an rpm package for one of my RHL 9 
boxes. The idea is to package up all my important system and 
application files such as /etc/sysconfg/*, httpd.conf, main.cf,
amavisd.conf, etc. 

This way, if I ever loose the box I can easily install this RPM 
on a rebuilt system and get it's old configuration back. Also, 
I'd just like to build an RPM for kicks. Any recomendations from
those who may have done something similar?

I'd like to script the rpm build process so if I change any config
files I can easily rebuild the rpm. Thanks.
