I gave up, and went the all-source-built route. Seems to be working like a

Ok, so far I have slash working on two redhat7.1 boxes.
What I did was
1) did a custome install, installed all the devel stuff, did
NOT install web/ftp/sql servers.
2) immediately made sure the 'wget' and 'tree' commands were
installed, if not installed them.
3) wgetted all tarballs that I'd need: apache, mod_perl, open_ssl,
mod_ssl, php4, perl, cpan, openssh, mysql, etc.
4) removed perl from the system: perl --nodeps -e perl && rm -fR /usr/lib/perl5
5) installed perl from tarball.
6) installed cpan and started installing perl bundles/modules/scripts
7) installed mysql
8) installed apache/mod_perl etc.
I got apache compiling and working after I realized I forgot to
*remove* Redhat's RPM's of openssl, then installed open_ssl
and apache compiled OK.
This broke Redhat's rpm's of ssh (client, server, etc).
So I had to install openssh by hand:
rpm -e openssh-server && rpm -e openssh-clients && rpm -e openssh
then, to compile openssh I used the following:
./configure --with-pam --with-tcp-wrappers --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh
then updated bender from CVS, make install UNINST=1 INIT=/etc/rc.d
and now I'm setting up my first slashsite. All seems to ready to roll.
