You shouldn't have to compile anything: some people already did that for
you. Just pick up the precompiled rpm packages for Mesa and Lesstif. For
example, download

and then make 

rpm -Uvh lesstif-0.91.4-1.i386.rpm Mesa-3.2-2.i386.rpm

You should also download the latest version of Gmsh for Linux (I've put
a new version on the web this morning: the old one will not work with
the last version of Lesstif).

and uncompress the archive with

tar zxvf gmsh-Linux.tar.gz

My best,
