Sure. The scripts I use to make the SRPM are available on Gitorious [1].

Essentially it's taking the Firefox SRPM from Red Hat, applying the
patches from Tor Browser, and doing some "other stuff". This "other
stuff" is documented in the CHANGELOG [2].

The SRPM itself is not included in the repository (as you can just
generate it from the scripts), but I've just made it available here [3].

(I then use the SRPM to build the RPM packages in mock. I think
debootstrap is the rough Debian equivalent to mock.)

Hope that helps.
