I'm using the latest gnome1 official desktop release. There's newer
individual packages but... (read on)

This is correct. However, the patch still makes sense.
A) it doesn't make sense to upgrade gnome-1.4 in order to install
B) including /usr/include in the includes path is evil by definition,
whether it causes compiler problems or not. It shouldn't be there in the
first place, even if I didn't have compiler problems.
I hope you're still willing to apply the patch, if only for reason (B).
