Rawhide has version 4. With any luck you could just rebuild the SRPM with 
no issues. I've done that with packages where I need a bleeding edge 
feature on a CentOS system. Sometimes I have to tweak the spec file so that 
it will build with the older tools.

The worse problem is when it depends on much newer other packages. Then one 
gets into dependency hell. In such a case, you might want to try using 
Fedora COPR to assemble a custom build system.
