You'd need to be familiar with rebuilding an RPM and editing a spec
file.  It's not that hard, but more than I have time to go into now. 
What I'd suggest you do is file a bug in Red Hat's bugzilla, and
reference that Ximian bug number.  Perhaps the Red Hat developers will
apply that patch in their version.

Probably not if you don't report it to Red Hat.
