Rebuilding the packages from Fedora/Planet CCRMA SRPMS is the way to
go. I did this for CentOS 5 a few years back, the bulk of it is quite
easy (a few packages may get quite painful, pd comes to mind).

I am currently working on migrating our workstations to Scientific Linux
6, which should be 100% compatible with CentOS. I have already published
a few packages at <http://rpms.ircam.fr/sl/6/>, probably more to come,
but I'm afraid I won't have time to rebuild everything.
