Usually, but not always due to versioned dependencies - which can often
be a massive pain to unravel. I've run into this a number of times on
past RH versions.

In this case, it's actually White Box Linux, one of a number of projects
that have taken the Red Hat .src.rpm packages for RHEL and rebuilt them
without a lot of the Red Hat branding. The first release is based on
RHEL3, which in turn is pretty much the official server-oriented version
of Red Hat Linux 9.
