I recently installed RT 3.8.8 on CentOS 5.4, 64bit.

There were a few extra steps I had to do in order for the 'make fixdeps' to succeed:
# yum install gd
# yum install gd-devel

Get the graphviz repo file.

# cp graphviz-rhel.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/

# yum install graphviz

There is also this, which is a bit overkill, but you can skip the "Active Directory 2003 & Exchange 2007" headache, and only do the RT part.  :)
