I doubt that you will find, anywhere, the ability to have multiple RT's 
installed via pacakages..  For something like this (having multiple 
installations of the same package), it takes a bit of administrative 
customization that typically is not found within the generalized packages.

I've been running multiple instances of RT for years.  The only trick 
involved is making sure that the FastCgi directives are properly set up 
within the virtual host.
