You could use my Fedora 14 rpms:

The only thing to pay attention to is you may also need to install
libpodofo and podofo, as well.

Please report back here if you have issues with the package.

I have for a long time packaged rpms for each release for the latest
Fedora and Mandriva releases, as well as all supported versions of
openSUSE and Suse Enterprise Linux
