hmm. so you compiled it already successfully? would be interesting to
quote the error message here. :-)

ok, regarding the "do not mess up my production environment" issue,
there are two ways to do this:

there is an "easy way", a script called jhbuild[1]. it should not
interfere with your existing installs and it is /supposed/ to be easy,
but it can also be a struggle (at least it was to me). i was also happy
about some tips at .

"even easier"(TM) would be using GARNOME[2], if you want to test
particular apps/versions or the entire GNOME desktop. it does not use
CVS versions but released tarballs (either stable or unstable), so
building it does not depend on the current state of CVS.
GARNOME is designed to not interfere with your existing installs, so
it's safe for testing. regardless if you build evo by jhbuild or
GARNOME, the deps sure are the same and automatically build by GARNOME.

cheers & good luck,

(thanks to guenther for quotes, like always)
