    EL4 is not that old. We skipped it here but I've built the current
DHCP on both EL3 and EL5 systems. It is an almost trivial operation.
There were no dependency problems with either.

    1) Unpack the distribution
    2) Modify site.conf to put in the paths to where you want 
	things to go
    3) Optionally set the *PATH* defines in .../includes/site.h
	to where you want things to be
    4) run configure
    5) make all
    6) make install
    7) Create an empty lease database file
    8) Create a config
    9) Have fun
