I think there are non-audio patches Gentoo applies that CCRMA probably 
doesn't have, but this is all hearsay.

I run Gentoo very successfully without the capabilities patch on a 2.6.6 
kernel. I don't have many problems with xruns but I no longer push 
latency at all and only use Jack for LinuxSampler and sometimes alsaplayer.

Maybe Ron should/could try a Vanilla kernel, or a Gentoo kernel itself? 
Do an emerge on a Gentoo box and then drag the tree over to the RH 
machine and try building it?
