Re: panel errors (It don't start!)

  Following up to myself...

  Recompiling from tarballs after a glibc-2.0.110-induced delay seems
to have let enough time, water, or CVS-induced weirdness pass.

  I notice that the ftp site's compile-order list varies from the FAQ,
so I used it this time and that might have helped.  I haven't done a
pure recompile in this order, but this is roughly what I used and the
order that I compiled it in to get things working happily...

	freetype-1.2			libaudiofile-0.1.5
	esound-0.2.7			glib-1.1.13
	gtk+-1.1.13			imlib-1.9.1
	gtk-engines-0.1			fnlib-0.4
	enlightenment-0.15.0-990115	ORBit-0.3.91
	gnome-libs-0.99.4		control-center-0.99.3
	libghttp-0.99.2			mc-4.5.9
	libxml-0.99.3			gnumeric-0.7
	gnome-objc-0.99.3		libgtop-0.99.2
	gnome-core-		gnome-admin-0.99.1
	gnome-utils-0.99.3		gnome-games-0.99.3
	gnome-media-0.99.3		gtop-0.99.2
	gimp-1.1.0			ee-0.3.5
	ggv-0.26			gnome-pim-0.99.3
	gnome-print-0.0.3		users-guide-0.99.2

  Hmm.  I get the same problem and I would have thought my build-area
was contamination free.  I had the occasion to use binaries compiled
dynamically against libpng-1.0.1 and then run when only -1.0.2 was
present and they even noticed (and complained intelligently about) that!

  I haven't resolved that problem yet, and it has almost driven me away
from CVS and over to tarballs to (presumably) get something more stable.

  I could take older CVS-based binaries and run them just fine on the
same system (blow away /opt/gnome, un-cpio other binaries, ldconfig -v
and I was off).  Since I don't keep libpng under /opt/gnome, that was
my leading indicator that the problem was probably in CVS and not in png.
