Mandriva 2009 is explicitly listed. libstdc++5-3.3.6-4mdv2009.0.i586.rpm 
installs on Cauldron (and AFAICT compat with or substitute for it still isn't 
available from Mageia repos). So I would expect since that works, so would an 
FCL rpm expressly built for the same system, even if not conveniently via a 
configured repo.

It's author has been around Linux a long time. I doubt he would claim what he 
claims about running on/built for old Fedora & Mandriva releases if it 
wouldn't install on newer versions. His goal is for it to just work using a 
minimum of deps that all distros require or at least provide anyway. It 
installed for me easily using the supplied repo file at least on openSUSE 
11.3, 11.4, 12.1, 12.2 & release next. I find it hard to believe it wouldn't 
install as well on Mageia 1, 2 or next, and I would rather have it from a 
configured repo instead of having to fetch it manually for each new devel build.

I looked around that site but didn't notice source even being available. I 
guess to find out if it even is requires access via a repo mechanism.

Not counting Gentoo, last I built anything from source was more than 5 years 
ago, and I don't expect it will happen again in my lifetime. I don't build. I 
test software others build.
