Did you find this wiki item?:

To wrap it up: it's a bad idea and unsupported. CentOS is a coherent and
stable system, manually adding or replacing stuff sacrifices that. Besides
that, why would you want to upgrade just because there is a newer version?
The Gimp in CentOS 4.4 works well and stable (for me).

If you want the latest rather than stable software, it may be better to
run Fedora.

With kind regards and a Merry Christmas,
