Pgadmin 3-1.10.5-1 RPM vs tar.gz

Experts,

         I have a VM with RHEL 5 installed for OS. I have installed PostgreSQL 9.0. Now I want to install PGadmin3-1.10.5-1 RPM  but I'm getting a libcrypto.so.10 dependency error. I cannot locate this file.
Could I use the PGadmin3-1.10.5.tar.gz file instead? What is the difference between these two files? I'm new at Linux so I'm not sure what these files differences are. My goal is to get a clean install of PGadmin3-1.10.5-1 that will be easily installed by a less experienced user.

I would just install the RPM with --nodeps. There is no libcrypto.so.10, only libcrypto.so.0. On my system, locate libcrypto | xargs ls -Fxl shows me:

As long as you have libcrypto.so.0.9.8, you should be fine.
