I don't think it'll update it if your RPM is considered more recent than
theirs, by version and release number. I also believe that you can mark the
package as a "do not update" inside your up2date setup.

Also, if your RHEL is on an x86_64 system, you'll need the 64-bit patches
applied on top of David Summers SRPM and need to recompile, or try working
from the Fedora Core 5 SRPM.
