AFAIK you can only do it by building from source. It really isn't too
bad, though it takes a while (depending on your hardware). If you
search the archives of this list you will find some info, in
particular links to sites with information on compiling for CentOS 5
and lists of items you can install as RPMs from your current repos
that will get you along in the process. I did it a while back and
posted everything I found to this list. I didn't maintain my notes
and got distracted by other projects, so I can't really be much help
now other than to point you to the list archives and Google.
