unshield has now been built in the EPEL repositories for EL-4 and
EL-5.  It should appear for use in the next day or so.  If you use the
EPEL repositories, yum install will just pull in the dependency.

EPEL is "Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux".  These packages are
built and provided by Fedora developers, but specifically target RHEL,
CentOS, and similar Enterprise Linux builds.  See
 http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
for more information and to participate.

Thanks,
Matt
