Do you have autoconf intalled?

rpm -qp --requires php-xcache-1.2.1-jason.1.src.rpm
yum install php-devel autoconf automake libtool
rpmbuild --rebuild php-xcache-1.2.1-jason.1.src.rpm
rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/php-xcache-5.1.6_1.2.1-jason.1.i386.rpm

BTW: Centos 4/5 binaries are also here:
