Currently I'm building or attempting to build Gnome2.2 on Red Hat 8.
I downloaded the X430src-1.tgz to X430src-7.tgz files and attempted to install XFree86. I wasn't successful on my first attempt.
In fact, I tried seven times before I got XFree86version 4.3 source correctly installed.
It needed zlib, zlib-devel, ncurses, ncurses-devel, libpng, and libpng-devel.
I also upgraded my glibc library from Redhat's ftp site.
make World > World.log 2>&1
make install > install.log
Now I'm stuck with libgnomecanvas-188.8.131.52 ....that's another story
