He's not saying that RepoForge is the same as EPEL.  He's saying that
the RepoForge mcrypt package puts the wrong configuration setting in
the mcrypt.ini file, whereas the EPEL version puts the correct
configuration setting.  He's requesting that RepoForge mcrypt php
package be fixed to have the correct module name in the mcrypt.ini
file so that php can actually find the correct shared object when it
looks for it.
