make distcheck checks that uninstall removes all
files. scrollkeeper-update (IIRC) creates files that don't get

In automake 1.7 I believe there's a variable you can set for the
command to use to list the files to be uninstalled, this feature could
be used to hack around the issue by removing scrollkeeper files from
the list, if nothing else.

Building gnome is not a problem. What needs fixing is "make distcheck"
