I'd be happier about audiofile if it didn't fall over on most of my sound
files. (It can't handle Sun .au format --- it rejects u-law encoding --- and
seems to screw up some of my .wav files. But I'm a sound luser... all I know
about it is what I've been able to trick sox into telling me.)
I've been more worried about figuring out prerequisites for compiling GNOME...
which is a superset of the runtime prerequisites question. It would help a
lot if there were some straightforward way to determine the prerequisites of
any given GNOME package.
