Specificlly to James' point .. there are a whole bunch compat-* rpms in
CentOS-7 to allow CentOS-6 things to run on CentOS-7

Look at yum list compat-\*

You can run many C6 workloads on C7.

If that is not an option(the libraries you need are not available), a
container or VM might be.

The issues that you will run into building things yourself is that you
also have to maintain all those packages through out the entire
lifecycle to maintain security.  It can certainly be done, but might no
be ideal.
