I don't know if the SRPMS themselves will work on systems other than
RH5, because I've never even looked at them.

However, the source from the CVS repository does build for me on my
system, which is Red Hat 4.0.  I'm sure it works elsewhere as well.

It's true that most of the work goes into RH 5.  That's because many
of the developers work at Red hat.  In fact, though, Gnome is not tied
to any particular system, not even Linux.
