Exactly why I was advocating it be in the CentOS distribution.

The rpm I used was mod_security-2.5.9-1.el5.i386.rpm. There was one lacking
dependency, lua-5.1.4-1.el5.i386.rpm.

So yes, do not install any rpm package that is not of the appropriate
version.  Be there, done that, bought the tee-shirt!
