So today I decided I to try out Nautilus. I downloaded all the packages
mentioned in the HACKING file from CVS, and compiled them with
--prefix=$HOME/usr so as not to interfere with my current Gnome

There were a couple of things that I needed to do to make it work, in
particular linking the * files in $HOME/usr/lib to /usr/lib so
that gnome-config finds them (anyway to tell gnome-config to check
other directories for * files?) and installing some other packages
like makeinfo and libwww.

Anyay, I got everything (OAF, GConf, Bonobo, Gnome-VFS, GtkHtml, etc,
etc, etc, and Nautilus) compiled and installed in $HOME/usr. Then came
the big moment: typing nautilus at the terminal.

I got this:

sh: syntax error near unexpected token `(n'
sh: -c: line 1: `cp -R (null) /home/loban/Nautilus'

** WARNING **: could not execute 'cp -R (null) /home/loban/Nautilus'.  Make sure you typed 'make install'

** ERROR **: file nautilus-file-utilities.c: line 191 (nautilus_user_main_directory): should not be reached
Aborted (core dumped)

Here is the backtrace:

So, what happened? If I did something wrong, what was it?
Shucks ... so close yet so far ....
