That's correct. RPMForge has it listed on http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/anjuta/ 
, but I only see old versions and no packages for EL5 (although you  
could try and rebuild the src.rpm).

When installing packages that are needed to build software, you need  
the -devel version. Did you install vte-devel? If the Anjuta source  
you have really requires vte 0.16.2 and you have 0.14.0 then I don't  
think that's going to work. You'll then need to also build vte 0.16.2  
from source.

Get the key and import it. Or if you trust the package without getting  
the key, you can tell your package manager to skip the key check: yum  
--nogpgcheck localinstall <downloaded-package>

You could try and find an IDE that is packaged for CentOS?
