For rkhunter, as far as I can remember, the Fedora 8/9 packages are upto
date, so you could download one of those from a mirror and install it.
Personally, I install rkhunter from source, but you can build an RPM
from the source tarball if you want (the source includes an RPM spec
file). Latest version is 1.3.2.
