12 Hi!
14 I think it is wonderful to have a distribution that finally *does* put
15 things this way. I think it is better to fix those programs that
16 doesn't compile when GNOME (or KDE, mozilla) is located in other
17 locations than /usr since they are broken. They should be using
18 'gnome-config' in there Makefile (if they don't use auto*).
20 gnome-config --cflags libgnomeui for includes
21 gnome-config --libs libgnomeui for libs
23 If the configure-script is broken you can try to execute it with:
25 CFLAGS="-I/opt/gnome/include" LDFLAGS="-L/opt/gnome/lib" ./configure
