Package: gdk-imlib1
Priority: optional
Section: oldlibs
Installed-Size: 276
Maintainer: Steve M. Robbins <smr@debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Source: imlib+png2

gdk-imlib is part of imlib which isn't split on RedHat afaict so I
suppose the answer is RedHat doesn't support Gnome 1.x anymore. I don't
know for certain because I don't actually run RedHat, I have just been
extracting rpm's to look at how they packaged imlib.
