RHAS4 has lksctp-tools-1.0.2 and RHAS5 has lksctp-tools-1.0.6. According the
changelog in 1.0.6 (/usr/share/doc/lksctp-tool-1.0.6/Changelog), there are some
bugfixes and changes in API. But there are only notes about that.

So there is no other way how to fix it than rewriting && recompiling your
application. If you want to get more detailed information, you'll maybe find
something at official web pages.
