Since I happen to sit on the CentOS mailing list as well, they would say
that you should always try to install from the yum repository first.

Three repositories that have a good chance of having it would be
kbsingh's, the dag repository, or rpmforge.

The normal OS repository absolutely won't have it, but if there's an
rpm for it anywhere, it will probably be on one of those.

Generally speaking, it's very highly suggested you try to use a CentOS rpm.

When all else fails, there is always CPAN, or installing from a tarball,
but you should definitely check the repositories first.  4.2 is old, but
even still.
