The most likely reason is that gnome-games and libgnome are looking in
different places. gnome-games sets up the score files but any actual
processing of them is done by libgnome (this will be changed at some
point). Check that they were both compiled with the same prefix,
gnome-games 2.4.x should issues a warning at the end of ./configure if
they aren't.

Aisleriot is setgid when it shouldn't be. Remove the setgid bit. I had
thought I'd fixed that bug in the isntallation code (although it may be
the result of an over-write installation in your case).
