[rrd-users] RRDTool 1.3.x for CentOS 4.x (repost due to lost msg)

I'm locked into using CentOS 4.x right now (corporate policy) but need the new
Holt-Winters features for a project I'm working on.
Does anyone have a binary (static build, rpm, anything) or a successful guide
to installing RRDTool 1.3.x on CentOS 4.x? Oh, and to add insult to injury,
yum is not an option (again, policy, don't ask)... but I can install via rpm,
non-rpm binary or source manually.
I tried to follow the instructions (rrdbuild docs), but there is a problem with
some of the packages (at least on my system) and I haven't been able to get
everything to compile.
In short, fontconfig fails to build, cairo then complains about no font
backends, and pango fails due to no backend.
As a little background, I've compiled RRDTool from source many times in the
past and have been compiling packages from source on unix/linux for about 14
years, so I *THINK* I've covered most of the obvious issues.
Any help would be appreciated! :)
