1.4.0-> problem

 some time ago, I reported that (well, I reported this only for two, but
it's the same) the packages

gnome-core 1.4.0
control-center 1.4.0
gnome-applets 1.4.0
gnome-games 1.4.0

 were broken by the process of applying the patch to More
detailfully (ough! I've invented a word, I fear!), when making `make dist'
on them after patching, the make process failed.
 I only want to report that this happens because the new packages have some
pictures added; for example the package gnome-applets have many new
documentation (mainly japanese translations) that contains pictures, in the
directory figures. Invoking diff with the switches `-ruN' ignores these
binary files, so when one makes dist, the process won't find them, and
fails. Anyway, the compilation/installation process is still ok, because an
error in the help directories isn't fatal.
 So, this was the reason; I don't think it's *so* important, but it's always
a fault of the new package... a solution would be to invoke diff with the
`-a' switch, but I think this won't behave *too* well; another would be, as
suggested by Miguel De Icaza, adopting xdelta.
 Thanks for the attention,
  Mano :)
