[mapserver-dev] doubt about compatibility between Mapserver 5.6.6 and Red Hat 4

Yes, you should be able to compile on RedHat 4, but you probably need to 
make sure you have the -devel packages loaded for the various dependencies.

Also you might check the various GID package repositories for mapserver 
package and you can probably install that directly and not need to 
compile it.

google:  rpm mapserver 5.6.6 el4

RedHat 4 is pretty old if you can upgrade you should seriously consider 
doing that. Both 5 and 6 have been released.
