Default Xfree86 and RandRRotation

Okay, so XFree86 uses X, but not really....
I've need to get rotate setup for portrait mode, our builds all have
to be based from redhat, which is XFree86 4.3
Now, as far as I can find, it uses version X 6.6, according to the docs it needs to be 6.8.1
Now, if I update the X portion, will that fry XFree86?
Will updating the X portion allow the randr options to work?

oh, and here is the output from xrandr -q on both of my displays

If you notice, neither allow for 'Rotations possible' other than normal.
So either the problem is my X is old (via XFree86) or there is some other issue.

The grahics work great, but I gotta have that rotation!
