pthread-stubs for CentOS

Hello, I try to install Mesa 7.8 for CentOS 5.
During installation of Mesa I required to install librdm, and during librdm (v. 2.4.19) installing I got error about missing pthread-stubs:

checking for PTHREADSTUBS... configure: error: Package requirements (pthread-stubs) were not met:

When I try:
yum provides *pthread-stubs*
I get nothing
In other place I found that libxcb-devel is what I need, but yum not find this too.
During searching in Google, I found rpm's for Fedora only.

Any one know whether there is some packege which provides pthread-stubs for CentOS, or other, less expensive way to install Mesa?

Thank you for ahead.

Unless you have a black screen, no X, mesa is already installed.
The release packages, CentOS 5.4 :

You may be missing the -devel versions, get it all with
1) su , 2) yum install mesa* freeglut-devel

I am not sure, you can compile a "future" version of mesa on CentOS.
(The main mesa packages are 7.8 on Fedora 13, some are version 6.5.)
May be it requires more files from glibc 2.11 .
A separate source libpthread-stubs is here
