It's not supposed to unless you configure --with-gnome, which does
work on RH6.1, so why not on Mandrake.

Currently that adds a couple of cute buttons and umpteen new bugs....
It's still experimental, and some of the crucial experiments are not
in yet, but Lyndon Drake says he's going to try some CORBA integration
with Gnumeric soon, which to my mind is where the really interesting
stuff begins.
