Re: [Evolution] Bonobo config script can't see liboaf?

So then, is it safe to assume that gnome stuff only cares about its own
config files when installing from source, and that it does not use the
paths defined in at all?

Well, not really.  You're just talking about 2 different things,
gnome-config just has a separate mechanism from for finding things
out (and it needs to find out different things too, so it makes sense).

You need to either (only 1 of):
 - setup GNOME_PATH to include /usr/local
 - setup GNOME_LIBCONFIG_PATH to include /usr/local/lib

Can either of these variables contain more that one path? For example, if
I have installed RPMs that put it all in /usr, and installed other stuff
from source that went into /usr/local (since I forgot to define
--prefix=/usr in the config), can I say

Yes you can.  But from looking at the code i think it assumes /usr
anyway, although i guess it wouldn't hurt to include it too.

If you are installing stuff from source, its generally a good idea not
to install it in /usr too, if you otherwise use rpm's or any similar
package management system (just incase one day you do instlal
overlapping packages and it starts to conflict).
