You need to configure rpmforge or another repo for this; it's not part
of the core OS.

Name   : lighttpd
Arch   : i386
Version: 1.4.19
Release: 1.el5.rf
Size   : 1.1 M
Repo   : rpmforge
Summary: Lightning fast webserver with light system requirements
Secure, fast, compliant and very flexible web-server which has been optimized
for high-performance environments. It has a very low memory footprint compared
to other webservers and takes care of cpu-load. Its advanced feature-set
(FastCGI, CGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting and many more) make
it the perfect webserver-software for every server that is suffering load

Available rpmbuild rebuild options :
--with : gamin webdavprops webdavlocks memcache
--without : ldap gdbm lua (cml) ssl
