You will probably have a hard time getting this to build on C5 as a lot
of build requirements are not available in the correct version,
including the auto tools and qt4:

Even on C6 the autoconf version does not fulfil Gambas requirements
(2.63 instead of 2.68), but then sometimes those requirements are set
higher than they actually are, so you could give it a shot.

You could use the spec file in
http://centos.karan.org/el5/extras/testing/SRPMS/gambas-1.0.19-7.el5.kb.src.rpm as a base to start from. You might need to configure additional repos for build requirements like SDL-devel.

And if you are looking for help it's usually a good idea to provide
specifics about where and how your build fails (grep -i the build log
for strings like "warning", "error" and "fail") instead of the rather
uninformative "I cannot get it to build". It also helps to read
documentation related to the build like the first link before you start
