Re: new easy GNOME2 CVS build script


thank you for all the nice mails and comments about that script. never
thought it is used by so many people. i even can't keep track of all the
requests and TODO's but i am doing my best.

only want to announce a new version. the last one caused some minor
problems with userbuilds (ldconfig was started but users don't have
access to create the librarypools) .. and many more fixes..

go to my homepage and grab the latest version. hope you enjoy using it.

- 0.1.0 - removed two ldconfig instructions from this script. they are
	  obsolete because we export the library paths. not to mention
	  that they cause a couple of problems when compiling gnome 2
	  as user and not root.
	- there was a problem with libpng's prefix in the makefile.
	  i was playing with sed the half morning and wasn't able to
	  replace the path in the makefile because the environment
	  variable has slashes in it. then i read the online book of
	  sed & awk from o'reilly and found out that i need to replace
	  the delimiters. this done and everything works as expected.
	- this script now generates a suitable .xinitrc file so there
	  is no need to mess around with that stuff. simply copy the
	  autogenerated file to your homedir and startx.
	- add so more warnings regarding old aclocal gnome m4 macros.
	- add a usercheck for galaxymode e.g. if we compile as root,
	  then we can't copy systemfiles to /etc and need to keep them
	  in our prefix installation dir.
