I think this is solved.

Fedora versions 9 and later do not include sys/stropts.h in the 
glibc-headers package.  I've patched the rxvt-unicode file 
to disable "HAVE_ISASTREAM".  Rxvt-unicode builds nicely.

Aterm suffers from the same issue, but will need more work.

I have added rxvt-unicode to the AppletRPMS Fedora 9 repo.
