I will set the spec file to the lower versions I got and test around with it. I don't actually need the graphing functions for the EL4 systems, just librrd to write to files or rrdcached to send data to a central collecting server. That server is running FreeBSD and had no problems compiling 1.4.1. Any test I have done there so far look good.
