When I tried to run it, it errored out:

# ./skype: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found 
(required by ./skype)

[1]+  Exit 1                  ./skype

This was with skype_static-, the one recommended for CentOS 
version 5.x in the HOW-TO.  So the how-to is either wrong or it's 
missing some information.
