RPMs needed for RHEL ES 3.0

I've been trying to compile and install several different GNU applications on my RHEL 3.0 U4 box, and I keep finding that the RPMs listed in my Red Hat Support channel thru up2date are not up to snuff. For example, I can't "make" superkaramba because my autoconf package is 2.57, and 2.58 or above is required.

Running up2date against autoconf shows that the latest autoconf package in that distro is 2.57. What are my options besides just getting the source for a new autoconf package and compiling/installing? I'd rather use an RPM.

You could check if dags has the rpms you require. You can install packages from his site using apt or yum (which you may have to download from his site).
