Does it need a change to gnome_about?

  my_url = gnome_href_new ("",
                           "Visit the author's Website");
  gtk_widget_show (my_url);
  gtk_box_pack_start (GTK_BOX ((GNOME_DIALOG (about))->vbox), my_url, FALSE,
                      FALSE, 0);

That's all you have to add to your about box code to do it. See the
screenshooter applet in 1.1.4 for an example.

At least as it is you could go ahead and add another, or something
else... The vbox provides you an area to play with, so I don't see the
need for changing gnome_about for that....

Just my 2 cents though ;)
