[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! :)
