You are assuming that every possible application for gtk/gnome is

I use RH 9 which is (I think) most popular linux distribution, but I still
have to build/compile/whatever a lot of applications.
Well, to be honest, that is a problem with your distribution. My distro does

What distro? :-) (Mandrake?)

And more - what if I want to have application with different options

Then the application is broken.

Well, you propably didn't understand me.

Little example (not from Gnome world but...) PHP in RH binaries are
compiled without XML support in PHP so I have to rebuild packages (and
add some dependent packages like sablotron etc)....
