The source RPMs have not been tested on anything other than Red Hat Linux
5.1 + all the updates listed in the errata.  I have heard that people
are running GNOME fine on Red Hat 4.2, but they are building everything
themselves.  Certainly, we'd all be interested in portability problems
in GNOME that would prevent it from running on any installation (with
suitable updates).
