Thanks for your concern. Yes, I am aware of that. I simply would not
expect a 'make garchive' have any problem as it does not install
anything, merely fetching+checksumming the sources.
However, as I look at my logs, it seems the 'install' target is executed
when doing a 'make garchive' hence the problem.
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.
I am then going to read in extenso the GAR architecture page
(http://www.lnx-bbc.org/garchitecture.html) as I still don't understand
many things about it (or are they counter-intuitive ?;)
