First thing I do on all new Redhat 9 installs is to disable the default
UTF-8 locale in /etc/sysconfig/i18n. UTF-8 implicates only problems as far
as I see. Not only perl fails with a UTF-8 locale but many other processes
slows down immense etc. (see bugzilla for that).

Second thing I did for uvscan was to install compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118
rpm for the /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.2.8.0 library. "ldd /usr/local/bin/uvscan"

$ ldd /usr/local/bin/uvscan 
        liblnxfv.so.4 => /usr/local/lib/liblnxfv.so.4 (0x40014000)
        libstdc++.so.2.8 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.2.8 (0x4028e000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x402cf000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x402f0000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

Does your uvscan on Redhar 9 fail on every scanned file or just on specific?
If your system fits the needs I showed and still uvscan fails, you might
inform me about the scanned file uvscan stumbles about.

Hope this helps you.
