That box should be plenty powerful enough to build Erlang natively
without any cross-compilation. As for src rpms, RH AS is AFAIK fairly
old so I wouldn't expect a src rpm tuned for e.g. Fedora to work as-is.

Why not just download the otp_src tarball, unpack it, and build it
normally? (./configure; make)
