command line mouse control for GNOME in RHEL6?

Is there a command line mouse control tool for gnome in rhel6?

The tool I found that fits the job best is xdotool but the closest package I found for it is for fedora 14.

I am needing to move the mouse to a certain position and initiate either left or right clicks depending on input.

If there are any better tools or packages of xdotool for rhel6 please let me know.

that looks like a pretty simple package without allot of dependencies
sometimes you just have to go off grid and build stuff yourself.
it has been a long time since i messed with the mysterious world of rpms
but you might try doing rpmbuild on the .src.rpm from fedora since the package has so few dependencies.

Thanks for the reply.

I dove into rpmbuild for a little while but to no avail. I really just need more practice at using spec files and rpmbuild.

I used an xdotool rpm based on fedora 12 ( which rhel6 is based on ) and it has been working perfecting so far.
