I'm pretty sure rlm_cache is enabled on 2.x.x bundled rpm spec. Not sure
since what version though.

2.2.5's spec builds rlm_cache. If you can build your own packages, you can
use the bundled spec file.

If you want to use prebuilt packages, try

unofficial, but should work for centos. Upgrading from 2.1.12 to 2.5.5
should be easy enough.

Or, use 3.0.x:

Like Arran side, nicer and easier.
