The Wind River 'recommended hosts list' indicates that RHEL 6.3 is a recommended host.
However if you execute 'make hob' within a platform project on this host, it fails with the message "FATAL: Gtk+, PyGtk and PyGobject are required to use Hob (No module named gobject)".

Steps to Reproduce

On a 'stock' RHEL 6.3 development host, create a platform project and then execute 'make hob'.
