Hi, RObert -

Well, no - not necessarily.  Remember, we try to keep as close to RHEL 
as we can.  In fact, I don't know of anything that's actually modified 
to be special for CentOS, aside from the usual.

The *@home guys probably built their own RPMs or installs for their 
setup.  Even though it's based on CentOS, doesn't mean it has to BE 
CentOS - it could be a heavily modified version, including additional 
libraries which are mroe bleeding edge, e.g. libtiff-3.8.2.

Hope that clears some thigns up for you.
