It looks like those RPMS are not built for CentOS-5 ... but were instead 
built against a version of linux with a  newer version of python installed.

You can't install FC8 packages (for example) directly on CentOS-5 ... 
all the shared libraries are different, so the required things will not 
exist.

depending on the item in question, you might be able to BUILD it from 
the sources on CentOS-5 and then use it ... I have no idea what hipl is 
or does.
