I doubt it. It is in a bundle of software. (A two-CD set that has a full 
Linux OS and 'everything else', supplied as Mandrake 8.0*.  Considering there 
is a large amount of "look and feel" utilities that seem based on Windows 
(some even crash regularly!) that are resource hungry, it seems then an 
oversight that they did not follow TeXLive and its larger allocations (for 
'modern' PCs) ?)



* 8.0 is the 2001 release.
