Whether it is a good idea and whether it ought to work are really two
separate conversations.  1.7 was building fine on RHEL 4 and then stopped
working.  Is that a bug that should be fixed?  I think so.  It might be up
to Michael to track down what caused the breakage though.  Like I said, I
also saw this problem but I was able to move to RHEL 5. So I lacked
motivation to solve it on RHEL 4.  In my case, I build my own version of all
of the dependencies, the versions that come from Red Hat does not matter to
me.  Exception being gcc and libc etc.
