Problems building gnome-guile

Hi everyone,

I've started to check out the snapshot rpm's and src.rpm's (I should use CVS I
guess but...) and apart from some problems with rpm macro definitions in the
.spec files (see my earlier post) things have gone fairly smoothly. I'm having a
problem building gnome-guile though:

%define nam      gnome-guile
%define rel      1998041014


rpm -ba gnome.guile.spec

or tar xvfz 'ing the tarball in the rpm and building from the source ends up
with this error:

------- insert ----------
(configure ends ...)

creating Makefile
creating config.h

(then the make stage ...)

Now type `make' to compile the Gnome Guile Libraries
+ [  !=  ]
+ make
Makefile:317: macros/macros.dep: No such file or directory
cd macros && make macros.dep
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/BUILD/gnome-guile-0.13/macros'

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/BUILD/gnome-guile-0.13'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

-------end insert-------

At this stage and for this size of project the, files,
etc, etc are *way* too complex for a mere user like me to figure out what is
going on (reminds me of imake :-) I don't even know what main.x is let alone why
it's not there!

I'm not really sure what I need to build gnome :-) (is there a list somewhere?)
but many of the other src.rpm's built and installed without problems (except the
above mentioned spec file macros). Here's some of the stuff I have installed on
a modified yygdrasil/RedHat Linux box: 

GNU Make version 3.74, by Richard Stallman and Roland McGrath
autoconf version 2.12
automake (GNU automake) 1.2
kernel 2.0.33

Anyway if there's an easy/obvious fix perhaps someone could post it otherwise
I'll try again in a week or so ...
