Why not use ports? Try to cd to /usr/ports/archivers/rpm and type 'make install'. That should do the trick. (Although the ported version of RPM is not of the 4.x branch).
Could you possibly send a longer description of the problem? ("not able to ./configure") is not a very clear description...

I have a question which I hope that you can help me with. I just tried to intstall rpm-4.0.4.tar.gz on my system[freebsd 4.8] and have not been able to get it to ./configure let alone make. Is there a special dir, ( /usr/compat/linux?), or dependencies
that are required to compile the tarball? My main reason for trying top install a package
manager is that I've had problems with gmetadom[lastest] and various other tarballs with
limited success. I am attempting to teach myself about unix and could just use a pointer
in the right direction. Thank you for your time...
