Hard question... not all packages will work
on all distros. But you pretty certainly can
manage to compile anything anywhere your-
self if you care to look for/install the other
things the software you want depends on :}

For instance I can't be bothered installing
gimp-1.3.16 because it wants some gnome
libraries I don't want to install :)

Cheers,
Tink
