I just installed Mandrake 9.0 (final), which has GCC 3.2.  Sword 
compiled fine, but neither BibleTime or GnomeSword would compile.  I 
plan to volunteer to set up RPMs for Mandrake 9.0 for Sword, BibleTime 
and GnomeSword as soon as they work  ;-)  and post them on MandrakeClub. 
  Maybe they will become a part of the next official release of Mandrake?

I already had installed all three on Yellow Dog Linux, which also uses 
KDE3 but uses the older GCC 2.95 compiler.

So it seems like neither GnomeSword or BibleTime have been updated.  I 
joined the GnomeSword mailling list and inquired about this, but haven't 
heard back yet.  No response from the Bibletime mailing list 
subscription as of yet (it's been one day).
