In the snapshot, there shoud be a file called ''.  This runs
automake, aclocal, and autoconf, and then passes command line options to
the newly made configure.  

Before you run it, however, you need to download the gnome-common
snapshot, run the autogen script there, and run make.  Then, assuming
gnome-common, gnome-libs and gnome-core are all off of the same directory,
go into gnome-libs, and type:

   ln -s ../gnome-common/macros
   ln -s ../gnome-common/intl
   ln -s ../gnome-common/support

Do the same thing in gnome-core.  Now you're ready to run the autogen
scripts, and make the packages.

Best of Luck,
