all subversions and incremental updates of a RHEL/CentOS major version 
use the same library versions, they backpatch critical updates and bugfixes.

For instance,  CentOS5 has glibc 2.5, python 2.4.3, apache httpd 2.2.3, 
php 5.1.6, ...   it will always have these versions regardless of updates.

the only time incremental updates should break things on a RHEL/CentOS 
system is add-on kernel modules and drivers, these need to be 
reinstalled after each incremental kernel update.
