Need to build openssh rpm from 5.8 source

Hello Openssh group,

I have downloaded the .tar.gz file from openssh site openssh-5.8p2.  I need
to build this src into an rpm.  I don’t see any makefile utility in the
main directory.  Although there are bunch of .c and .h files.  And I see
Makefile in other directory, but none seems to build the openssh-5.8p2

Could someone guide me as to how to build it from scratch.

I am beginner to the list and need this help.
