That's not an error! That's an advisory. You need a lib.

Nonsense. If you need a library, install it. If you have to replace
libraries, then the rpm IS NOT FOR YOUR DISTRO.

apt for redhat.

Why on earth don't you just use sendmail like the rest of the universe?
And "no", you cannot "do an rpm". You can install THE rom of exim for

laurel in laurel and hardy?

Compile. Why do you want 3 instead of 4? RH comes with 4 these days.
There are precompiled rpms for 6.2.
What kind of weird strategies are you following, and why? What have you
