We use Dag's Cfengine RPM on 4.x and do package management with it.

The only trap that we've encountered, beyond those already listed, is
that cfengine executes shellcommands with umask 077, and many RPMs
don't install correctly with umask 077.  To fix this, make sure that
you always add a umask=022 option to any rpm shellcommands.
