Some of them.
At the moment I keep running into problem with the shared libraries,
but I can't figure out whether the Makefile is the problem, gnome is,
the system or I. Kaffe has the same type of problem (but those
Makefiles and libtool work the same way...)

Philippe Defert mails regularly to this list that he compiled several
Gnome packages/versions on several OS's, including some changes he had
to make to get it that far. Check his mails via http.

We have some ImageMagic library installed, but I needed libjpeg, too.
Also, I needed libz (, Berkeley db (,
beware of the version!) and gettext. Of course, GNU versions of lots
of programs are useful.

bison, yacc and such are installed here, presented no problems. The
system administrators here are pretty good.

Did not do these.

Good Luck!
