how about

remove anything you manually compiled


#apt-get update
#apt-get -f dist-upgrade

the -f option:
    Fix; attempt to correct a system with broken dependencies in place. This
option, when used with install/remove, can omit any packages to permit APT to
deduce a likely soltion. Any Package that are specified must completly correct
the problem. The option is sometimes necessary when running APT for the first
time; APT itself does not allow broken package dependencies to exist on a
system. It is possible that a system's dependency structure can be so corrupt
as to require manual intervention (which usually means using dselect(8) or dpkg
--remove to eliminate some of the offending packages). Use of this option
together with -m may produce an error in some situations. Configuration Item:

this should straighten everything out, and get the latest ccrma/redhat rpms for

good luck...p.s. if this blows up your system. i'm not responsible ;-)
