Dear Tom,
   Thanks for your suggestion.
   In the past, when I have tried to build the latest evolution in
the context of a system tied to even the latest RedHat version
(due to our University maintenance agreement), I find there are
numerous library incompatibilities and I have not been successful.
I suppose I need to set up a separate directory under /usr/lib
and place all the required newer libraries there and link
evolution against those.  Is that what you do?  Does the Makefile
you indicated take care of all that automatically?  Even after
all that, I would not be surprised to find further conflicts
with parts of the RedHat versions of other gnome components.

Unfortunately Paul's Makefile only works for Ubuntu and Debian.

On, he says:
Currently the makefile has builtin knowledge of Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty
Fawn), Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), and Debian Etch. The
distro-specific parts are the ones that check the system for build
prerequisites; if you have a different distro you can set the distro
to empty (so it doesn't do any prerequisite check) and cross your
fingers! If you would like to help get this working on other
distributions, such as RPM-based systems, I'm interested.

You could just give it a try. Maybe, build the needed gnome libraries
from source and install it into /opt/evo.

Why don't you check out the bleeding edge version. Just grab the Makefile at
and do a 'make all'. It will check out the latest subversion trunk version, configure, build and install 
it to /opt/evo. 
I do that for several months now and it works very well.
