For Red Hat EL4 (CentOS4.4) gets a bit more complicated.  No package was
available in any of my usual CentOS repos (addons, atrpms, base,
centosplus, dries, extras, kbs-CentOS-Extras,kbs-CentOS-Misc,rpmforge,
update) for monotone, so tried to rebuild FC extras packages from
src.rpm, but found deps on boost-devel >= 1.33.1 for recent versions,
whereas only 1.32.0 was available.  Rebuilding boost-1.33.1-10.fc5 led
to build deps on libicu-devel. Even the FC package was monotone-0.31 so
downloaded the tarball for 32 and modified the spec file.  Building now.

No CentOS/EL4 texi2html RPM available either - rebuilds OK from
texi2html-1.76-4.fc6.src.rpm; git came in OK with 14 additional

Will post further updates/details later if there is interest.  Gotta run
to work.
