Here is what I did to successfully compile on a RHEL5 server.  I actually used the sources+diffs from Ubuntu. Try the command sequence below.  I have a functioning CVSNT on RHEL5 server.  I use the "pserver" or "ssh/ext" protocols.  The other protocols will require installing the library dependencies from your distribution.  You can find CentOS 5 packages at [http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/5/].
