I don't really see what this has to do with creating a tarball. Your
question relates more to the building of the software binaries than
the packaging.

Generally what you're seeing is attributed to missing dependencies for
the build process. For example, you may be missing several -devel
packages required for the proper compilation of the software, or
what's shipped in centos may simply not be new enough.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
