Is this rpm package installs? If so then that is the problem as Fedora 
does not package static libraries.

It is probably not available within the Fedora package world. The proper 
fix would be to get the csound faust opcodes to link against the faust 
shared libraries instead od the static library. You could also try to 
install your own faust from source in your home directory and use that. 
Sorry to not have an easy way out...
