You can help gnome-config find * files that aren't in
$(PREFIX)/lib by setting the GNOME_PATH environment variable to
the directory you are using as an alternative prefix.

(So if you have GNOME installed under /usr, and if you are installing
CVS versions of things under /home/me/gnome-local, set GNOME_PATH
equal to /home/me/gnome-local.)

You'll also probably need to set things like C_INCLUDE_PATH,
approprite places under /home/me/gnome-local (or whatever).

As always, YMMV: I've had trouble getting stable versions and devel
versions of some libraries to co-exist properly on my system.  (Though
at GUADEC, Havoc (IIRC) said that it will be possible to have both the
GNOME 1.0 and 2.0 libs and development stuff simultaneously installed
on a machine, which is good news...)
