A related Q: Is there a way to do this with Yum ? (2.4.0)

I'm trying "yum install foo.src", but it only gives me a:

<try download>
<think some more>
No Match for argument: foo.src
Nothing to do

Not to mention the apt-get --build, or build-dep ?
Seems I'll just keep my good ole APT-RPM around...
(i.e. Yum for binaries, APT for source packages ?
Maybe switch over to Smart later. i.e. much later)
