Re: deskbar preventing garnome-2.14.1 compile

The output indicates that configure detected the system version of
python, version 2.3 installed under /usr/bin,  rather than python2.4
installed under $HOME/garnome.

Try this...

        Edit to explicitly set the PYTHON environment
        variable to point at the version in $HOME/garnome/bin.

There are three other applications that may [or may not] give you grief:
* bootstrap/gamin
* platform/libxml2
* platform/libxslt

If you encounter difficulties with these apps, fetch the versions from
CVS-HEAD which have been patched to build and install correctly when
using python installed in a non-standard location.
