That version does build OK on my c5 as well.

Looking at the sources and reading the INSTALL requirements from the
tarballs, it would seem that the last version which would build where
CentOS-5 meets all the build requires without a core package upgrade
would be "seahorse-2.20.3".  Any version higher than that has a
requirement for a newer version of gnome-keyring than comes with CentOS-5.x.

There is a requirement for gpgme > 1.x which is not in CentOS but can be
obtained from Dag's RPMForge (has version 1.1.8).

I did not build this, but it should build according to the INSTALL docs.
