After small investigation on RHEL6.6 and fence agents from upstream 
(latest git).

Summary: Yes, it should work.

* it is required to fix auto* stuff as Alan found
     fix - it will be in next release very likely
         change ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS from -I m4 to -I make
         change AC_CONFIG_MACRO-DIR from m4 to make

*  a) fence_vmware_soap requires package python-requests (+deps) 
available only in EPEL
     b) ignore fence_vmware_soap
         fix) from configure.ac remove AC_PYTHON_MODULE(requests, 1)

* in lib/fencing.py.py replace 'stream=sys.stderr' with 'sys.stderr' 
(one occurency)

* standard ./autogen.sh; ./configure; make
