I was thinking of all the little piceses that I need to run autoconf, automake, and intltool. I have them all
installed now.

I do. But...

I get the error--> (error "unknown font type" "Xft") problem.

with latest git 
I run into m4 problems 
aclocal: couldn't open directory `m4': No such file or directory
where the documentation says that I should pretty much guess what it's
looking for?

with 1.3.3 (which I have running on my gentoo machine at home)
I get lots of glib errors during compilation:
colors.o:/usr/include/glib-2.0/glib/gutils.h:343: first defined here
windows.o: In function `g_trash_stack_height':
/usr/include/glib-2.0/glib/gutils.h:356: multiple definition of `g_trash_stack_height'
colors.o:/usr/include/glib-2.0/glib/gutils.h:356: first defined here

the same goes for 1.3.4 and 1.3.4-experimental

However seem to work fine!!!

So other CentOS 5.3 users should probably go for
