(This page is a work in progress. Instructions are for building the HipHop VM, or HHVM for CentOS 6.3 64bit. HHVM is currently found only in the VM branch)

Although CentOS doesn't provide libmcrypt, we can borrow from another repo and get the files we need.

Make sure that your system time is correct, otherwise ./configure will fail.

As of this writing, libdwarf is not available with CentOS 6.3, and the version of libtbb is much too old. Both these packages also suffer the problem of not having install targets, so getting them on your system is a bit more cumbersome.
wget 'http://threadingbuildingblocks.org/uploads/77/187/4.0%20update%205/tbb40_20120613oss_src.tgz' tar -zxf tbb40_20120613oss_src.tgz cd tbb40_20120613oss make sudo mkdir -p /usr/include/serial sudo cp -a include/serial/* /usr/include/serial/ sudo mkdir -p /usr/include/tbb sudo cp -a include/tbb/* /usr/include/tbb/ sudo cp build/linux_intel64_gcc_cc4.4.6_libc2.12_kernel2.6.32_release/libtbb.so.2 /usr/lib64/ sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libtbb.so.2 /usr/lib64/libtbb.so cd ..
The exact path to your generated libtbb.so.2 may be slightly different depending on your version of gcc, libc, and the kernel, but that should be close.

If any errors occur, it may be required to remove the CMakeCache.txt directory in the checkout.
If your failure was on the @make@ command, try to correct the error and run @make@ again, it should restart from the point it stops. If don't, try to remove as explained above.
If you met some issues on build, You could also try to upgrade your Boost to 1.50 version and GCC to 4.6.1 version: You could follow this instruction for build BOOST: https://github.com/jackywei/HOW-TO-BUILD-HHVM-WiKi/wiki/Build-&-install-Boost-1.50-in-CentOS-(CentOS5.2-&-6.3-are-both-verified)
You could follow this instruction for build GCC4.6.1: https://github.com/jackywei/HOW-TO-BUILD-HHVM-WiKi/wiki/Build-&-Install-GCC4.6.1-in-CentOS(5.2-or-6.3-are-both-verified)
