RH doesn't provide one, so you can't get XEmacs "for" RH 6.
Although that matters in some corporate environments, I presume your
requirements aren't quite *that* strict. Recent Fedora should have
RPMs you can use "with" RH 6 in the "extras" distribution. There may
also be XEmacs in the Centos distributions, which should also work
with RH 6, and might be more compatible than Fedora, even. An
announcement of a recent package of XEmacs for Fedora is here:
I don't have a cite offhand for Centos, Google doesn't turn up
Finally, it should be straightforward to build XEmacs from source on
any Red Hat distribution, except for choosing the configuration. For
personal use, this is what I would recommend. If you need to create
an organizational distribution of XEmacs, it's probably easier to just
use an existing rpm, of course.
If you decide to build from source, feel free to ask here about
appropriate configuration for your requirements.
