autoconf -> rpm

I have a software package that I build with the standard GNU autotools
(autoconf/automake/libtool).  Is there an automated method of converting
this process to RPM?

Briefly, I would like to create two RPMs:

 - one that compiles/builds and installs the package (i.e. a source RPM)
 - one that just installs the package (i.e. I would have pre-built the
package myself).

The second option is particularly important to me since I have to install
this package on machines that do not have development tools (gcc, make,
...)
