Your RPM was built on a Fedora, RHEL 6, or other more recent OS with
the updated version of RPM.

I'm afraid you'll have to recompile it to get it to work well: use
'rpm2cpio' to take apart the SRPM and get the files, then deposit them
in a relevant "SOURCES" directory with the .spec file in your relevant
SPECS directory, and try to rebuild RPM's with the .spec file.

I can get into more detail if you need it, but it's how I backported
Torque 2.4.10 to RHEL 5 from the EPEL RHEL 6 repository two weeks ago.
