I don't have RHEL4, but otp R12B-3 builds and installs fine on
my ppc64 box running YDL6 (similar to FC6 and RHEL5).

I suspect either an incorrect ./configure or make command, or some
undetected build failure prior to the failure you quoted above.
Please show us your entire build log, including your ./configure 
and make commands. (It's going to be big and may not be suitable
for posting to a mailing list. You can just give us a URL to it.)
