I think they should. Only thing I can think of which might seriously
break things, is if there are major differences in the standard c/c++
libs in Rawhide, contrary to the redhat version you're trying to install
to. I've sucessfully upgraded to Rawhide packages on my computer at work
a few times when I wanted the bleeding edge version of something,
allthough I usually recompile from source and install somewhere I know
won't cause havoc (/opt or /usr/local). I think it should be pretty safe
to provide a link to the Rawhide packages, possibly with a small warning
that those packages are actually part of RedHat's beta distribution and
may cause badness.
