I have (better had) the same problem on Mandrake 9.1 which is related to 
some automake version if I remember... but I have been able to make 
Gideon run on Mandrake making a kind of 'brutal' binary installation 
from sources compiled on a RedHat 9 using --prefix=/opt/gideon .... 
(just copied the dirs and used a stupid shell script)

... so why don't provide a binary build as an alternative to source 
Something like Openoffice or Mozilla binary installations could be great 
.... and there should be a safer (and more elegant) way to do the 
'brutal installation' I did

Is it possible?? Are there any real obstacles??
