You are welcomed. I am surprised some of the problems are still there - I reported them and/or provided patches/workarounds for them a couple of years ago... I used to build sge and got quite familiar with its code base, but lately fedora (8? or 9 onwards) ships it so there isn't much point od doing my own. May be I should ask the question: why isn't grabbing the rpm via yum good enough for you, or the curtesy binaries? CentOS 5.3 should be binary-compatible with fedora 10, I think, so it should be painless just installing the fedora 10 RPMs or just 'rpm --rebuild' the source rpm; the curtesy binaries have some very antique dependencies the last time I checked, but that should work as well.
A few comments below, and hope that it would be useful for others or in the future.

The Berkeley DB package should be available from the distro - 'yum install db4 and db4-devel' should do it.

I don't know the Berkeley DB well enough, but I would have thought rpc and posixmutexes are the defaults for unix systems? The distro-shipped packages should work well enough.

SGE can be built also with lesstif, I think.

typo - 'libXpm-devel.i386' .

I think the correct fix here is to put linux under the same category as HP-UX (which ships the shared-library version of those libraries) to make it use the dynamic version of the libraries, rather than changing the static defines.

some of these probably aren't necessary if you simply do
setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52
In any case, as I already wrote the problem is simply that the auto-detection of JAVA_HOME based on `which java`, and it ended up grabbing jni includes from files of the same name but different content off the linux kernel :-).

should use the distro-shipped packages/headers...
