The patch seems to be available since long
Could you please have a look?
Well, fixing this issue doesn't make much sense to me:
1) I wonder why sblim-sfcb is in EPEL, it's part of RHEL for longer time. Shouldn't it be removed from EPEL then? (I wasn't able to find it in Fedora packaging guidelines.)
2) low/low and it's resolved by using systemd in recent Fedora/RHEL releases.
But okay, if you're interested...
sblim-sfcb-1.3.8-2.el5 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 5.

Yes, if the package is available via RHEL, it makes sense to retire it from EPEL repository.
Please do retire it from EPEL.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora EPEL 5 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=epel-testing sblim-sfcb-1.3.8-2.el5'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
Did you have chance to file for its retirement from epel-5?
thanks for reminder, done.
