I also use RHEL4 packages, but not ones that come from Red Hat, ones I build 
for RHEL4:

On similar hardware, (1750 with 2GB ram, 36GB in RAID1 with a hot spare), but 
with approximately the same cachesize in DB_CONFIG (as there are other 
databases), one of our similarly sized databases (~ 450 000 entries, ~420MB 
of raw ldif), takes less than two hours to import (on 2.3.x). I don't have 
stats for 2.2.
