I succesfully installed CouchDB 0.9.0 on RHEL 5.3 this morning. I 
installed all dependencies through yum and it's working fine. I added 
the EPEL [0] repository for Erlang and SpiderMonkey. Apparently EPEL for 
RHEL/CentOS 4 doesn't have SpiderMonkey though, and it only has Erlang 
R11B. EPEL for RHEL/CentOS 5 does have Erlang R12B and SpiderMonkey 
1.7.0 available.

Maybe you can request SpiderMonkey and a newer Erlang through Red Hat's 
Bugzilla (file under EPEL), but there might be reasons (dependencies) 
why SpiderMonkey is not available for RHEL 4. 

Anyway, just wanted to say that CouchDB 0.9.0 works fine on RHEL 5. The 
CouchDB README doesn't have any Red Hat-specific instructions at the 
moment (some things are different), but I plan on contributing my notes 
after some cleaning up.
