If you are using a modern linux distribution, precompiled packages should be 
For example with Mandrahe 9.2, the following packages are installed on my 
computer :
$ rpm -qa|grep gsl


so that if you do 
# urpmi libgsl0-1.4-2mdk libgsl0-devel-1.4-2mdk gsl-doc-1.4-2mdk 

you should hae a working gsl installation... and can try examples found in the 
documentation instantaneously!!!

If you run debian then it should be  apt-get install ....

With Mandrake 9.2 it works like I just said...
With redhat or debian I don't know but it shouldn't be too complicated.
