You are using the expat RPM that is the second link on:
If so, are you *SURE* it's not building the -devel package? Did it build
and you just didn't install it, perhaps?

The only way for RPMs to be universal across RedHat 5.x through 7.x would
be to continue to use all the libraries from 5.x and not upgrade them, or
to build everything staticly linked. Most people would prefer to use the
newer libraries and kernels, however.
The SRPMs are about as universal as you can get, but in this case it means
that you need to upgrade your expat RPM.

RedHat's fault? Why? It was me that started using a -devel package, and
the expat folks are the ones how made the changes from version 1.1 to
1.95... Time marches on -- things change...

As far as I know, these SRPMs work with RedHat 6.x -- as long as you have a
more recent expat. I think that for 6.2 you'll need to remove the build
prereq line for db1-devel.
I'm not running a 6.2 box here though, so I must admit that it's not a high
priority... If you can build them and provide me details on what was
required to build it under 6.2, I'll be happy to see about integrating them
into the main distribution.
I'll see if I can get a box to load 6.2 on and figure things out, but I
can't commit to a timeline for it.
