There's still an open issue wrt. libmodplug:


Fixing this might make Repoforge work with EPEL (for this specific case), 
but the impact of updating libmodplug is big. Especially it would require 
us to recompile older vlc packages, which is quite timeconsuming.

Or we could just drop older vlc builds on RHEL5 and older, of course...
