The recursor doesn't build on RHEL 3, without compiling recursor works fine.

>Bugs fixed in the recursor:
>   * Possible stability issues in the recursor on encountering errors
>     (commit 532, commit 533)
>   * Memory leaks in recursor fixed (commit 534, commit 572). In a test 800
>     million real life DNS packets have been sent to the recursor,
>     representing several days of traffic from a major ISP, memory use was
>     high (500MB), but stable.
>   * Prune all data in PowerDNS - previously per-nameserver and per-query
>     performance statistics were kept around forever (commit 535)
>   * IPv6 additional processing was broken. Reported by Lionel Elie Mamane,
>     who also provided a fix. The problem was fixed differently in the end.
>     commit 562.
>   * pdns_recursor did not shuffle answers since 2.9.19, leading to
>     problems sending mail to the Hotmail servers. Reported in ticket 54,
>     fixed in commit 567.
>   * If a single nameserver had multiple IP addresses listed, PowerDNS
>     would only use one of them. Noted by Mark Martin, fixed in commit 570,
>     who depends on a domain with 4 nameserver IP addresses of which 2 are
>     broken.
>Improvements to the recursor:
>   * Commits 540, 541, 542, 543, 545, 547 and 548, 574 all speed up the
>     recursor by a large factor, without altering the DNS algorithm.
>   * commit 549 and commit 550 work around gcc bug 24704 if requested,
>     which speeds up the recursor a lot, but involves a dirty hack. Enable
>     with ./configure --enable-gcc-skip-locking. No guarantees!
>Bugs fixed in the authoritative nameserver:
>   * PowerDNS would no longer allow a '/' in domain names, fixed by commit
>     537, reported in ticket 48.
>   * On some compilers, processing of NAPTR records could cause the server
>     to crash. Reported by Bernd Froemel in ticket 29, fixed in commit 538.
>   * Referrals were subtly broken by recent CNAME/Wildcard improvements,
>     fixed in commit 539. Fix and other improvements sponsored by True.
>   * PowerDNS would try to insert records it has no knowledge about in
>     slave zones, which did not work. Reported in ticket 60, fixed in
>     commit 566. A superior fix would be to implement the relevant unknown
>     record standard.
>Improvements to the authoritative nameserver:
>   * Pipebackend did not properly propagate the ABI version to its
>     children, fixed in commit 546, reported by kickdaddy at gmail.com in
>     ticket 45.
>   * OpenDBX backend added (commit 559, commit 560, commit 561) by Norbert
>     Sendetzky. From the website: " The OpenDBX backend enables it to fetch
>     DNS information from every DBMS supported by the OpenDBX library and
>     combines the power of one of the best DNS server implementations with
>     the flexibility of the OpenDBX library. " OpenDBX adds some other
>     features like database failover. Thanks Norbert!
>   * LDAP fixes as reported in ticket 37, fixed in commit 558, which maked
>     pdns_control notify work.
>   * Arjo Hooimeijer added support for soa-refresh-default,
>     soa-retry-default, soa-expire-default, which were previously
>     hardcoded. commit 563 and fallout in commit 573 (thanks to Wolfram
>     Schlich).
>   * Fixes for g++ 4.1. Compiling with 4.1 realizes notable speedups.
>     commit 568, commit 569.
>   * PowerDNS now reports if it is running in 32 or 64 bit mode, useful for
>     bi-arch users that need to know if they are benefitting from their
>     great processor. commit 571.
>   * dnsscope compiles again, commit 551, commit 564 (FreeBSD 64-bit
>     time_t).
>   * Build scripts were added, mostly for internal use but we know some
>     PowerDNS users build their own packages too. commit 553, commit 554,
>     commit 555, commit 556, commit 557.
>   * bootstrap script was not included in release. Thanks to Stefan Arentz
>     for noticing. Fixed in commit 574.
