Do the following:

Code:
#unpack files
tar zxf yourifle.src.tg.gz

# go into indirectory where it has been unpacking
cd your-creted-directory

# configure 
# for all parameters use 'configure --help'
./configure --prefix=/path/to/install/mysql

#compile files
make

#install it
make install
Be aware! You have to install many header files of different libraries if you want to compile the source. Minimum you have to install kernel headers.
Code:
yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel
You have to install C compiler
Code:
yum install gcc
While running ./configure it can stop with an error message. For example libxml is missing.
You have to install the missing library, in my example use
Code:
yum install libxml-headers libxml-devel

Good luck :-)

libzip is a common library, try 'yum install libzip libzip-devel' (you have to install both)

Probably you can install without libzip
'./configure .... --without-libzip'

if configure allows it and you needn't ZIP operations, I guess that is a feature, but it not a necessary library.
