I'd do a fresh install.  FC5 uses Xorg for X instead of FC3's XFree86.
There's lots of inherent differences between the two systems...
especially in the development trees.  You're running into that issue.

Can you fix it without a reinstall?  Yes, but it can be rather time
consuming and frustrating.  I've done it.  I wouldn't do it again.
