nope.  looks like the debian folks are the only
ones who are tracking PIL tightly [1] at this time.

but on the other hand, PIL should build right out
of the box on your red hat box.   just make sure
you have the developer RPM's for Python on the
box, and the rest shouldn't be much harder than:

    make install

and a little copying of PIL.pth and the PIL/*.py files
to a suitable place along the Python path.


(matthias et al are even one step beyond the official release! ;-)
