This looks like it won't be a problem.  I just rebuilt the yum  
package without including a yum.conf and it installs fine.  I also  
removed the requires on 'yumconf' as that is something which is  
provided by the centos-release package but it's not in RHEL-4.   
Here's what happens when you run yum without a /etc/yum.conf file:

# yum update
Config Error: Error accessing file for config file:///etc/yum.conf

You can get my updated yum package here:

sha1sum is in:
http://www.sheltren.com/epel/packages/sha1sums.txt which is signed  
with my gpg key.
