Douglas,

Just a couple of issues you will have to address/lookup into:

 * you'll have to static link the tcpwrappers' library in EL4 and in EL5
   (syslog daemons can't depend on anything under /usr)

   rpm -ql tcp_wrappers (in EL5)
   -----------------------------
   /usr/include/tcpd.h
   /usr/lib/libwrap.a
   /usr/lib/libwrap.so
   /usr/lib/libwrap.so.0
   /usr/lib/libwrap.so.0.7.6
   ....

 * EL4 only: you may also have to check if the glib2 library is already
   located in /lib

 * with the introduction of rsyslog in EL5.2 the logrotate file was modified

   $ cat /etc/logrotate.d/syslog 
   /var/log/messages /var/log/secure /var/log/maillog /var/log/spooler \
            /var/log/boot.log /var/log/cron {
      sharedscripts
      postrotate
      /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslogd.pid 2> /dev/null` 2> /dev/null ||
true
      /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/rsyslogd.pid 2> /dev/null` 2> /dev/null ||
true
      endscript
   }

   Notice the two pid files: one for sysklogd and one for rsyslog


 (question: why doesn't rsyslog use the same filename as the pid file?)
