Please be careful when doing this. It's very common (using irc support
as a basis for evaluation) to have users grabbing any old rpm they
come across from here and installing it. Make sure it's an rpm that's
actually built for RHEL/CentOS of the appropriate version. There are a
number of support requests for folks who have slapped in a fedora,
mandrake, or aging redhat package only to find things are now broken.

mod_security is in the highly public EPEL 3rd party repository, as
well as directly from the mod_security website, and several other 3rd
party repos, jason litka, etc... While it might be nice to bring it
closer to the distro, it's not exactly lacking in distribution.
