% rpm --rebuild dialog-0.6-16.src.rpm 
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/dialog-0.6/src'
install -m 755 -o root -g root dialog /var/tmp/dialog-root/usr/bin
install: /var/tmp/dialog-root/usr/bin/dialog: Operation not permitted
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1

The 'make install' process is trying to install files owned by root.  This means
you have to be root to rebuild the source package, which is a Bad Thing.

Would be better to specify file ownership in the %files part of the spec file
rather than by chmodding as part of 'make install'.

works for me with the current dialog-0.9a-6.src.rpm. You may consider to take a newer version?
