The GDAL project does not produce regular downloadable binaries (executables) for each release. However, a variety of efforts do produce ready to use binaries.
The FWTools binary releases for Linux and Windows systems include the full set of GDAL libraries, utilities, python support and documentation along with lots of other stuff (including the OpenEV viewer). More information is available at:
The FWTools binaries for Linux should work on pretty much any modern Intel Linux system (note their production is currently discontinued).
