 PH)  It worked ...

 PH)  gtk's glib ended up in /usr/X11R6/lib (and include) while glib's
 PH)  ended up in /usr/local/lib (and include)

 PH)  where that lib/cpp came from but it made the test-compile bail)
 PH)  I finaly have ORBit.

Please tell me what system you are on.  libIDL requires cpp, and at
the moment just uses /lib/cpp.  This is only temporarty, and I will
probably have libIDL's autoconf search for cpp in a few places soon.

btw, I had to add sys/types.h to a header file when testing ORBit
under AIX today as well.  One of those adds has been committed.

 PH)  Now Where/How do I get/compile an ORBit-ized version of the
 PH)  Panel ??

Install ORBit, remove config.cache in gnome-core if necessary, autogen
then build.
