that's what I am doing...but I run on the following problem:

I use debian, and I have one instance of evolution installed.

I start my development instance using 

The problem is that for vcf importing, the importer is loaded from 
/usr/lib/evolution/1.4/evolution-vcard-importer, not from my development 
instance, even if
I put the the ~/projects/evolutionxxx/.../lib directory in the 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or in the PATH....

an idea?
BONOBO_ACTIVATION_PATH is the important one, it needs to point to the relevent .server file.

And to debug stuff like this, run evo, get to the importer stage, then attach to the process with gdb before doing the actual import.  The importer process should be activated before it runs.
