While noting that GConf doesn't build at the moment, ;-)

Remember that ALL the libs have to be frozen by July 29. But any libs
that depend on a given lib (call it X) can't start development until X
is kept at least compiling most of the time.

I would say that Tinderbox can begin by building GTK at least, for
now. As other libs are willing to commit to a working build and allow
higher-in-the-dependency-chain libs to begin development, we add those
libs to Tinderbox.

We need to coordinate between the libgnomeui, bonobo, gtk,
etc. maintainers to be sure the non-compilation phase of development
for each lib doesn't mess up development of dependent libs.
