What version of the package are you actually trying to build? If it's
the native RHEL-6.5 package then I would expect that to build out-of-the
box on unmodified CentOS 6.5.

If it is some later upstream version then you may find there are
considerable changes in dependencies needed to build and those may
require a large number of package updates to enable building the later
version (which you'd need to also build from source).

The autoconf problems you're hitting make it sound like that may be the
case (although you could encounter similar problems if e.g. the package
is from 6.6 beta and there was also an updated autotools in that
