There are no RHEL/RHAS4 out-of-the-box Bind 9.3.4 solutions; I know, 
because I've just spent a day or so (having to) adapt(ing) an FC5 9.3.4 
srpm for my i686 RHAS4 rigs. Apart from anything else, RHAS4 doesn't 
like the stock FC5 srpm dbus stuff.

Why I bothered I really don't know, 9.2.4 works perfectly well enough 
for our needs and RHEL/RHAS5 is just around the corner, anyway.
