[R] RPM of R-1.2.1 for RH 7?

There does not seem to be a RPM for Red Hat 7 of version 1.2.1.
What should I do?  I have a new computer with RH7.

I'm willing to try to make one from the SRPM, but I've never done
that before, and I don't want to go to the trouble if someone
else is already planning to do it soon.

Likewise, I could install it from the tgz file.  (I just did that
on a Solaris server, so I ought to be able to do it on my new
computer.)  But if I do that, and then I want to update next time
from an RPM, how do I know I'm putting things where they ought to
go (when I use the tgz file), so I don't wind up with two
versions at some later time?

I did try the RPM for RH 6 and it didn't work on RH 7 (although
it worked fine on my RH 6 computer).
