There are some bugs fixed in 2.5 -- most importantly, one that
sometimes causes rsync-over-ssh to hang.  If they're not bugging you,
it would be OK to stay on 2.4.

It ought to be possible to fix 2.5 to work on RH5, but I haven't got
around to it yet.  If you want, you could start by looking at whether
the builtin getaddrinfo is used or not.

Altneratively you could cross-compile a static version of rsync using
the MIPS gcc on some other machine.
