Hi Doug,
I did the same without any issues:

1. Download

2. Use cpio
rpm2cpio ofa_kernel-1.4-ofed1.4.src.rpm > ofa_kernel-1.4-ofed1.4.cpio
cpio -i < ofa_kernel-1.4-ofed1.4.cpio

3. Run configure (I tried with and without quilt installed, kernel 
tar xzf ofa_kernel-1.4.tgz
cd ofa_kernel-1.4/

Attached is the series file generated by quilt.
