Honestly I don't know offhand..  But FC3 has yum and apt-get is also 
so when you need something you can just "yum install blah" to install whatever
package you need.  If you install the gnome devel libraries that should give
you most of what you need.  ISTR that I needed to only add about three or four
additional -devel packages, which was easily determined by seeing what
configure complained about.

You'll definitely need g-wrap-devel (which will pull in guile-devel).
I don't know what else doesn't come pre-installed.  Pretty much anything that
Debian calls -dev Red Hat calls -devel.

ISO should suffice for everything.
