It would be much more simple if you install ntfs support using yum or apt then all those dependencies are cleared.
Just a hint :-)
For good advices using yum or apt take a look at
and maybe is also useful for your needs.

Put this into your /etc/yum.conf

name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms

name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms

then a simple
#yum install ntfs*
should be enough to install all those necessary files.

The rpm file that fits to your kernel?

Here is also a perfect instruction:

If you choose to follow the compilation path, I think you need the kernel sources of the running kernel (uname -r).
Do you have them installed ?
