That's probably pretty tricky. What is a Redhat installation? What is it 
after half the files have been gutted and replaced with packages from 
elsewhere or source-built binaries?

Once /etc/issue gets changed, there's nothing that conclusively identifies
the machine as RedHat except for an arbitrary assortment of files and
directories that may or may not be intact.
