Well, if anyone else has run into this same problem I seem to have fixed
it.  The solution was one of two things:

1) I had imlib and imlib-devel RPMs still installed.  This caused imlib.m4
to be in /usr/share/aclocal which could have been conflicting with my m4
files in /opt/gnome/share/aclocal

2) I had my ACLOCAL_FLAGS variable set to "-I /opt/gnome/share/aclocal"
and not "-I /opt/gnome/share/aclocal/" (note trailing slash).
