It hasn't been built for CentOS 5 yet, apparently.

CentOS doesn't because RHEL doesn't. If you don't like it, take it up with
them. :-) CentOS realizes that many people will want this, so they rebuild
postfix and put it in centosplus for your convenience (at least they did for
4 - I'm not sure where they are with 5 on this aspect).
