Not impossible, but harder.

Truncating console output and at the same time asking for help is
frowned upon.

Anyway, most of these dependency issues are easy to analyse with just
a few yum/repoquery queries. Simply query what package versions are installed
currently and which versions are available. Also notice the helpful set of
tools in "yum-utils".

You should see a newer gcc *and* libmudflag-devel in the repo. Check whether
you don't have any duplicates installed. Please confirm by doing a *little bit*
of homework.
