  I can confirm, I had to recompile and upgrade a lot of the Gnome stack 
to work on Sabayon in my RHEL4 workstation, even Glib needed to be updated
with a later release, so no this is really not possible with a pristine,
supported RHEL4. The development was really targetting Fedora Core 4, and
Mark had to fix for example Gtk python bindings to get sabayon to work.
The gamin-python package is also not available until RHEL4-U2.

  I think that is possible, but I can't remember precisely, Mark certainly
knows. Well you can try it, sabayon-apply doesn't have much dependancies.
