gnome-love would be a better list to try on.

Are you building from tarballs with jhbuild or from cvs?  (If you
don't know, the answer is cvs)  If from cvs, realize that it's
possible the jhbuild moduleset hasn't kept up with the branching
(especially if you have been trying to get the build to work over a
longer period of time and haven't manually updated your jhbuild

I've just skipped evolution-exchange as I don't have any way to test
it anyway (it's just for allowing evolution to connect to Windows mail
servers, and I don't have access to any)...

I would be _really_ surprised if it couldn't, though I haven't tried
out that exact version myself yet.  (I have built it on RHEL4,
CentOS4, and at least a beta build on FC3, all of which ought to be
fairly close to FC4).
