I do agree with you,
but as far as i remember EPEL provides packages that does not exist in RHEL5
official upstream.
we are using sqlite 3.4.2 and rpm and all sqlite aware apps are working
perfectly :-)

if you want to keep the official sqlite and install the 3.4.2 version it
would need more work in both sides.
for sqlite you will need to install in separate directories. create binary
with version ....
for opendnssec you will need to link it to the sqlite version you have

i see two options:
1°) chroot opendnssec and all of his dependencies
2°) static link between opendnssec and sqlite 3.4.2
