I don't think RHEL4 comes with all the PERL modules needed to satisfy  
all the dependencies.
Thus, you will have to install the missing ones via CPAN.

In the past, updates delivered by RedHat had the potential to hose  
these CPAN-installed bits.
In fairness, I don't think this is the case anymore.
But as the wiki mentions, if you know a bit of FreeBSD, it's by far  
the best platform to run RT on, and also the easiest to get it  
running in the first place.

Are there any specific reasons why you would go with RHEL4?
I'd consider RHEL5 or CentOS5 (if FreeBSD is no-go), because they  
come with MySQL5.0 by default anyway.
Or skip MySQL all together and go for PostgreSQL right away.
