I would use that package manager of yours to remove jhbuild from the

this technology (can one specify sysconfdir to /etc?) will chime in.
Either that or giving jhbuild user write access to /usr/etc, and be done
I did so after your last message, and bootstrap ran (raises more
questions), but I do prefer to use /etc for config files.
It was explained that jhbuild is intended to be used as chroot (the
reason prefix/etc is created). Am I building an interim environment? Do
I use an interim location and then 'make dist'?
How is one supposed to install Gnome 3? The web page
(http://www.gnome.org/getting-gnome/) indicates to use jhbuild.
I have found no instructions that detail installation. Perhaps I have
not looked in the right place.
Still open for suggestions.
