RT is a pain to install on CentOS.  I never found a way that avoided
CPAN entirely, but was able to get a great deal of it from rpmforge. 

You can see my page at

I don't know if any of it will help you.

I was using an older version, but that's exactly what I had to do,
migrate it.

Hopefully, you're familiar with migrating it.  The gotcha I ran into was
that I had to change the newer machine's default sendmail 

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl


dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl

Another gotcha was that I had to cpoy /opt/rt3/bin/rt3-mailgate to
/etc/smrsh amdn make sure the permissions were 755 owner root, group rt. 

But to answer your original question, I wasn't able to avoid CPAN.
