These shouldn't necessarily be problems, but we might need to supply
alternatives, maybe.  A couple of notes:

1) you have finite listed twice
2) I'm not sure what mkdtemp is.  I don't see that on Solaris,
   so that could be a real problem.
3) Solaris also does not have ieee754.h

These are a problem.  RHEL3 only has 1.6.0.

I presume this is libart_lgpl-2.3.11-2?  If so then this should be
fine w.r.t RHEL3.

This is also a problem; RHEL's libgnomeprint22 is only at
