Well, ATM, using a simple-but-possibly-wrong hack[1] 10 of the 18 gtk
dependencies fail distcheck. So... obviously I could be doing
something wrong (some of the failures seem to indicate 'new'
dependencies, for example) but it's clearly not going to be a walk in
the park for this to work.


[1] replace 'make check' with 'make distcheck' in the make check
(i.e., post-build, pre-install) phase
