How can I batch convert SVG files containing text to PDF files (specifically on CentOS 5.3 x86_64)? [duplicate]

I would like to programatically convert SVG files to PDF files. However, the SVG files contain text that must be searchable in the generated PDF files. Also, it has to work on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 or CentOS 5.3 for the x86_64 architecture. It would be nice if it were Open Source or at least not very expensive.

"most tools out there are (like batik or imagemagick) are going to turn your vector data into a raster map.

I would try rsvg-convert. It uses cairo as a backend, so you may have the same compile problems you're having with svg2pdf."
