there appears to be no backporting to do; it's a single .c file that
makes simple use (I assume...) of libext2...

But no, it's not in Fedora, EPEL, or RHEL.  Builds fine on my rhel5 box.

If you wanted to, you could be the maintainer for Fedora, and put it
into EPEL, which would make it available for RHEL :)
