The first one is to build it from *.tar.gz sources. The second one is to build it from *.src.rpm as you recommended.  I think that the closer one *.src.rpm from http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/ashigabou to CentOS 5.0 is Fedoea 6

I can easily remove them when installation fails. In case of *.src.rmp I will have to study the installation and removing procedure first. I am going to start with rpmbuild. If you have some suggestions let me know.

Ok, it looks like SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 is similar enough to opensuse 
such as I won't have to do modifications, so the packages should be 
built soon and made available in 
http://software.opensuse.org/download/home:/ashigabou (a couple of hours 
maximum depending on the availability of the compiler farm).
