You shouldn't do builds based on the host OS packages. If you use mock
then you can use a CentOS/RHEL5 build host, and make mingw packages using
a Fedora 9 based mock config. So no need to actually build anything against
unfortunately i don't understand this:-(
suppose i would like to put these packages into EPEL too.
then where should i build those packages which get into EPEL-5?

what's more i'd like to compile my program on centos-5. i hope now i'm
