I don't know if there are currently issues with centos, but you should
compile sage from source. prerequesites are, i think, "gcc, g++, make,
m4, perl, and ranlib" and besides time after "make" you don't need to
do anything else. numeric libraries are then optimized for your cpu,
you get an encapsulated package of libraries and they are tested to
play well together...
