	Ok; this just means we don't have a po/ directory; which means no i18n
of gnome-mag, which is hardly a large blow; since it's only used for the
.server file which has only very seldomly read strings in it.

	Kenneth, can you expand on whether intltool now works without a po/
directory ? and/or what the state of that is ? and/or whether you can
fix-up gnome-mag. It'd be great if you could add a po/ directory and
whatever is necessary to gnome-mag.

	Ok; as for the rest of the trace:

	As soon as you get a warning like this - the build will fail; it
doesn't tell you that, and it shouldn't fail :-) but aclocal does that
these days. So you need to fix these first.

	The easy way to do that is be deleting each of these paths:
/opt/gnome2/share/aclocal/esd.m4 - since you have the same m4 file
installed in /usr/share/aclocal -  since you have esd's development
stuff already on your machine. Not a problem, I have to do that all the

	It's the macros; delete just the ones that are mentioned :-)

	:-) and better, we'll succeed in doing a good job of packaging them too
one day; and then life will be good.

	Thanks again,
