I noticed when running pacemakers lrmd there is no longer a -r option which looking at my old ps command was how it was getting started:

Honestly, I'd probably recommend to just stop fighting the distro you're on :-)
Just follow http://clusterlabs.org/quickstart-redhat.html to get what comes with and was tested for RHEL 6.4
