For this very reason I have Chickensys' Translator Pro (running under WinXP).
 Yeah, it sucks to have to use Windows for the translation process, but the
resulting files are usable on a Linux system.  I have translated all my Gig
files to Soundfont format, which are quite playable in Fluidsynth/Qsynth.  The
only thing I lose in translation are key switches, in which case are
translated to separate instruments.

See: http://www.chickensys.com/support/software/translator/soundfont/giga.html
for details.
