I guess you already installed gnome-libs, then updated and installed ORBit
(Elliot wrote that he broke binary compatibility) and now you're trying to
install gnome-libs again.

I got the same problem yesterday - due to a bug in libtool it doesn't
execute the newly built gnome-gen-mimedb, but the one that's in your PATH
(and sometimes it is even trying to use the newly compiled libraries instead
of the ones it was linked with). So you should delete to old gnome-gen-mimedb
first before running `make install'. This made it work for me.

If this does not help, try deleting all of the old gnome-libs libraries
