That's tiny, why not just include the text in your message?

You do not need autoconf to compile Emacs from a release tar file.
Nor do you need texinfo.
There's no point installing image libraries if you are going to
configure --without-x.

IIRC, the solution might be 

  yum install ncurses-devel

(I think it's fixed in Emacs trunk.)

There's also

  yum-builddep emacs

as mentioned in INSTALL. Not sure it will work right in CentOS 5 though.
