AFAIK the proposition is only to drop support for the Gtk lib that comes
with RHEL 5, so you could still build Emacs on it, just not using the
Gtk toolkit.

I'd expect most of the RHEL 5 systems still running are mostly-headless
servers, which is another argument to say that supporting their old Gtk
toolkit is not worth the trouble.
