I had problems compiling and running H323 on RH9, vanilla install and it took 
forever and when starting up, loading the h323 shared libraries took quite a few 
seconds.. i had this on OpenH323, GnuGK, Asterisk. I never figured out the 
problem (didnt look to hard tbh) but switching to 7.3 which was what I had used 
on the development platform fixed the issues.

I've had other issues on RH9, again dont know the root cause but for me its easy 
enough to use the older release and spend an hour bringing packages up to date.
