All external dependencies for Metaproxy are available as RPM packages, either from your distribution site, or from the RPMfind site.
For example, an installation of the requires Boost C++ development libraries on RedHat Fedora C4 and C5 can be done like this:
wget ftp://fr.rpmfind.net/wlinux/fedora/core/updates/testing/4/SRPMS/boost-1.33.0-3.fc4.src.rpm sudo rpmbuild --buildroot src/ --rebuild -p fc4/boost-1.33.0-3.fc4.src.rpm sudo rpm -U /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/boost-*rpm
The YAZ library is needed to compile Metaproxy, see there for more information on available RPM packages.
There is currently no official RPM package for YAZ++. See the YAZ++ pages for more information on a Unix tarball install.
With these packages installed, the usual configure + make procedure can be used for Metaproxy as outlined in Section 1, “Installation on Unix (from Source)”.
