gnome-common is a CVS-only thing. Nothing outside of cvs.gnome.org
should be using it, because we make no guarantees about the stability
of the "interface" that it presents. e.g. to move to a different
automake we'll just change what gnome-autogen.sh does, and that would
break many apps.
Third-party apps should be using their own autogen.sh script.
