Tried to test this patch in RPM, and it works as it's supposed to.
Just a cosmetic question: for *-config, other software uses xxxx2-config
instead of xxxx-config-2. Should orbit follow it or differ?

Another suggestion: is it better to do a simplistic move for ORBit1
headers, say, from /usr/include/* to /usr/include/ORBit1/* ? Then
programs requiring ORBit1 just need to be recompiled, and not too many
other changes needed. In other words, follow what glib/gtk does now.
