We can probably add a check to conditionally add
perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker to BuildRequires only if needed, this will
solve the particular "issue" I was having.

Chris, do you have any plans to include RRDtool 1.3rc7 (or newer) to
EPEL?  I think it's do-able on a EL4 based system (I've done it), but
you need updated versions of glib2, pango, cairo and intltool.
