Just be aware that that version doesn't have the latest "in the wild"
features. When I looked into porting the latest some months back, I
found too many changes need for my experience level (python. gtk2?, ...
and more).

If you don't need all the "glitz", maybe one of the others would do? I
use and like rtorrent, but there's also this stuff

Available Packages
ctorrent.i386           1.3.4-3.dnh2.1.el5.kb  kbs-CentOS-Testi
ktorrent.i386           2.2.1-1.el5.rf         rpmforge        
libtorrent-devel.i386   0.12.0-1.el5.rf        rpmforge        
torrentzip.i386         0.2-1.el5.rf           rpmforge

There's others that don't have torrent in the package name, but I can't
recall them ATM. I saw them when I was running rtorrent to share my 5.2
images though.

A browse of the rpmforge site should lead you to alternatives if you
have the interest in them.
