changing the rpm package won't be so easy. i would suggest that you first
try to use the rpm from rpmforge. maybe this version is new enough for you.
if not try finding some other repo.

If you still need a newer package, try first to install your version on a
fresh install on centos and solve the dependencies. Make notes on what you
changed and then replace all the rpms you changed on the install cd. or you
can make your own yum repo and install the packages from the repo after the
install using yum update.
