Yes, some more details would be useful. I built emacs on fedora a few
months back without issue. Could it possibly be the issue is not that
Fedora is too bleeding endge or is it that the OP's version is too old
and so they have to install later lib versions than are available? It
would be good to know what version of fedora they are trying to build on.

I've also built emacs on recent arch without issue and arch typically
has pretty bleeding edge libs.
