This is irrelevant here, but you may want to consider
- enabling centosplus
- "yum update" to go to 4.5.

you can setup your own yum repository. but this will not help a lot. I
had many packages in a local yum repo because they were not available
(mysql 5, php 5, ...). but when newer versions became available in
centos site, this created a problem. I have one box I cannot easily
update because it is using a recent version of subversion, but some
centos packages want old dependencies (and a long time ago, I fought
against a centos wanting some httpd-mn or something like that). rpm is
deeply broken, and yum doesn't help enough.

not that I know of. and even if there were one, you cannot enable
repositories just because they have a package you want. they may also
have packages that break your system.
