I think that would be more work for them.  It would be much easier to 
use existing rpms from Fedora Core/Extras 6 and just add some 
'requires:' to the php-pear specfile.  I'm sure it's not a trivial 
request to support 6 more rpms in RHEL5 though, so we'll see what they 
say.  If you think about it though, really they have removed those 6 
rpms from RHEL if they don't add them.

This also prevents writing a spec file for Horde that works with php4 
and php5.
