RedHat Install Challenge

I am installing on Redhat 7.2 - in cgi-bin/cracklib there is the following cryptic README:

[root@email cracklib]# more README.txt
need to install on clients:

apt-get install libcrypt-cracklib-perl

to make the dictionary indexes, need to do:

# apt-get install cracklib-runtime wenglish

$ /usr/sbin/crack_mkdict /usr/share/dict/words | /usr/sbin/crack_packer $LJHOME/cgi-bin/cracklib/dict

The Redhat version of Debian's apt-get sits on rpm - but cannot find either of these libs and this is confirmed by

[root@email cracklib]# apt-get install libcrypt-cracklib-perl

A search at http://apt.freshrpms.net confirms the package does not exist in this form. Has no-one installed on RedHat Linux?
