Yes, you can build a RPM on a development machine then install it on
production systems.  This is the preferred way to install software on
"production" Red Hat systems.  But you need root access to use RPM on
the target host.  Also, the RPM spec file works in SWISH-E 2.4.2 but has
a problem in 2.4.3.

Without root access on the target host, you should be able to build
SWISH-E with an alternate prefix  (./configure --prefix=/path/to/prefix
&& make && make install) and then copy the entire prefix directory to
the destination machine.  You may need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH
environment variable to run the swish-e executable.  (i.e.
"LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/prefix/lib swish-e")
