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.
