Any differences you find between RHEL and CentOS should be reported to the
CentOS guys.  They'd be very interested to know as I think a project goal
of theirs is to be as binary compatible with RHEL as possible.  We use
both CentOS and RHEL in our environment.  The same EPEL trees work fine
with both and, at times, we've even cross used CentOS RPM's on RHEL
without any issue (we had to for various reasons)

/2 cents.
