My yum doesn't believe in evolution-ews.

There are Fedora 14 i386 packages at

*today*, I hope?

If you're on Fedora 15 or non-i386, you'll currently need to build from
source. It's not hard:

I'm still on Fedora 13, so I definitely need source.

sudo yum install evolution-devel evolution-data-server-devel "pkgconfig(gconf-2.0)" "pkgconfig(glib-2.0)" 
"pkgconfig(gtk-doc)" gettext intltool gnome-common
git clone git://
cd evolution-ews

autoconf reports six failures.
Two of the complaints were that <ac_nonexistent.h> did not exist.
<ac_nonexistent.h> does not exist.
Apparently <ac_nonexistent.h> is used as an error marker,
but what error it marks, I cannot tell.
I don't see any way this could have ended well:
configure:4160: $? = 0
configure:4174: gcc -E  conftest.c
conftest.c:11:28: error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory
configure:4174: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h */
| #define PACKAGE_NAME "evolution-ews"
| #define PACKAGE_TARNAME "evolution-ews"
| #define PACKAGE_VERSION "0.31.0"
| #define PACKAGE_STRING "evolution-ews 0.31.0"
| #define PACKAGE_URL ""
| #define PACKAGE "evolution-ews"
| #define VERSION "0.31.0"
| /* end confdefs.h.  */
| #include <ac_nonexistent.h>
The third was about an extern inside a function.
I think that without -Werror it would have been a warning.
It also complains "conftest.c:48: error: conflicting types for built-in
function 'dcgettext'"
It lists
| char dcgettext ();
Which differs from the man pages
char * dcgettext (const char * domainname, const char * msgid,
                  int category);
The fifth complaint is another about an extern inside a function.
The last is about a missing <glib.h>
I have /usr/include/glib-2.0/glib.h .
Do I just have to put in a -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 somewhere?

I've lost all my battles with autoconf,
so I definitely cannot do this myself.
