FWIW, I've built PyPy 1.8 in RPM form for RHEL 5 and 6, within the
"EPEL" community repositories: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
So if you've configured the EPEL repos, you can install pypy via:
# yum install pypy
and not have to do the translation yourself.
Note that this is a side-project by me, not an "official" Red
The EPEL 5 builds of pypy 1.8 can be seen here:
The EPEL 6 builds of pypy 1.8 can be seen here:
Hope this is helpful
