The problem is that rpm is a mess, and each distribution needs special 
casing because they can't agree on what to put where. If you look at the 
rpm spec file, you will see that it is special cased for CENTOS/RHEL. I 
used version 5 because that's the only one available on the build 
system. You could change that to version 4 and see what happens.
