i really don't know.
but usually things are lot easier than one would expect...

yes, but there are no devel-packages for fc8, are there?
so: libXXX and libXXX-devel packages are built from "sources"
your distro might provide these sources as a source-package (e.g.
libXXX.rpms) or not; but the original authors might/will provide their
sources as well.
e.g. you can get libv4l from hans's site, e.g.
grab this package; untar it; read the README.txt/INSTALL.txt or whatever
then do something like
# make install
and you should have libv4l installed into /usr/local/, effectively
bypassing your package-manager.
you might need to install other packages in order for this to work, but
i am not familiar with fc (and even less with fc8).
you might be totally out of luck, and it won't build for your
distro/version. in this case you might have to upgrade to a newer fc.
but you might as well have luck and it works...
