Enhancement request: 'Native' importing of '.CSV' files

That only leaves me with the question of which distribution to use to
start the building and testing on ? I initially tried Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4, but almost all of the packages used there were
severely out of date. Then I switched to Fedora 10, which gave me a
cryptic error message about gtkHTML not being build with the needed
options (like gtkPrint or somesuch). So neither RHEL4 nor Fedora 10
seemed easily suitable.

So I would like to ask : what distro are (most) of the developers
using, so I can *easily* build the latest svn trunk version of GnuCash
? (Preferably without having to build all the dependencies myself, of
course ;)
