1. get gnome-common-SNAP-whatever and untar it next to gnome-libs.
2. symlink gnome-libs/macros to ../gnome-common/macros
3. do the smae for gnome-libs/intl and gnome-libs/support.
4. cd to gnome-libs and run ./ with whatever options you would
pass to configure.

At this point you should be ready to 'make'.  this is the procedure for
any of the GNOME modules (if you get them from
make sure you have up-to-date versions of libtool, automake, etc.
