The CollabNet RPM has gnome-keyring support and installs into a
private location (/opt/CollabNet_Subversion) so it will not mess up
your other build or install. I'd suggest you try it to rule out
problems with your build.

I assumed you made sure you were using your build and not the version
that comes with CentOS.
