1 I have question/suggestion. Is it really necessary to put mozilla,
2 gnome and others in /opt? I know it keeps it a bit more organzed and
3 such, but it really makes it a pain when compiling things. Some
4 programs, despite what they're told to use via the configure script
5 insist on using includes from /usr/include instead of
6 /opt/gnome/include. If not changing it, at least provide sympolic links
7 or something (ie ln -s /usr/gnome/include/* /usr/include/ ). I think it
8 would solve quite a few problems.
