The problem is that libgnomesu requires root access to do a 'setuid
root' (i.e. chown root) for certain files. If you don't have root access
then libgnomesu will fail to install and your build will stop. The only
solution for now is to remove g-s-m and libgnomesu from desktop if you
don't have root access.
