For the Qt libraries you have to install the qt4-devel package. For qt4-x11 there is not a package with that name in Centos5. However someone reported that Skype should work well without that dependency. To force installation of the package despite the missing dependency use --nodeps, but only after having matched all other dependencies but the qt4-x11.

It is best to download the RPM from the Skype website, then, as root, type in

yum --nogpg install name_of_skype_rpm.rpm
The nogpg switch is required because the skype rpm is not signed.

Running yum install on a local rpm will tell yum to install the rpm, and resolve any dependencies using the configured repositories
