And even *if* you would be able to upgrade from CentOS 5.x to 6 -
technically and by personal skills - what makes you think that your self
compiled software would not completely fail, just because libraries change?

If you would have gone the proper way by using rpms, or where not
available by building your own rpms, things would be no drama for you
when doing a fresh install of CentOS 6, because you could again install
additional software from 3rd party repositories or you could just
rebuild and install your own rpms.

You are barking up the wrong tree.
