Adding a Fedora repository like this is not possibly going to work.

To get libguestfs 1.6 to compile, I would start with installing the
dependencies from all the 'BuildRequires' lines in this file:

http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=libguestfs.git;a=blob;f=libguestfs.spec;hb=HEAD

(The basic ones at least, don't bother with the language bindings).

Once you've got a good proportion of the basic BRs added, you can try
compiling using that spec file and rpmbuild.

This is definitely not a simple task since we haven't been concerned
with RHEL 5 compatibility for the latest libguestfs (only version 1.2)
for many months, so undoubtedly parts of the code have changed to be
incompatible with RHEL 5's gcc, autotools etc.
