Additional info:
I have rebuilt the most recent Fedora 14 SRPM for Smartmontools with no changes on RHEL6, and it solves this problem.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-04-17 02:00:09 EDT
Since RHEL 6.1 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
