I found similar mistakes in the glib spec, only instead of leaving out a
directory it left out libgmodule itself (try to get gimp 1.1 to compile
and run without that :)) However, even after I posted it to the list
several weeks ago, then later mailed it to Miguel, and it went to nothing happened. Also trying to get a cvs account to
contribute something like a spec patch (even if it is important) will
probably not happen. I think the real question is, why has it been so
hard to contribute to GNOME?? Has anyone else had problems getting their
patches applied?

glib spec patch attached for the benifit of all the posters who still
are having trouble finding libgmodule.
