One could just use the relevant .src.rpm from Fedora and recompile them
on RHEL. At least I did that with no problems (*) whatsoever several
times with the .src.rpms from Fedora 9 an 10

You can't use directly rpms from Fedora 11 because the formath has
changed slightly, but you can install the .src.rpm in Fedora, and copy
the contents (spec, sources and patches) to RHEL to rebuild it.

(*) You should edit the ipa.spec and change

BuildRequires:  popt-devel


BuildRequires:  popt
