Problems compiling from source.

Sorry peeps.

Never before have I had so much hassle in compiling a source package. 
Trying to get the latest version of Gnome up and running is proving 
increasingly frustrating :-(

All the gnome-libs compile fine. I have used recent versions of all 
(if not the latest stable ones). All install into the default 
locations, all compiled with CFLAGS=-O2.

Problems start when compiling control-center (reported elsewhere by 
others). This I temporarily hacked, with the intention of sorting out 
later. However, unlike Frank Hale, the problem was not solved by 
using gnome-libs-1.2.3 ('cos thats what I had to begin with!) And, 
AFAICT, everything that should be there is there, in the right place. 
ldconfig run after each completed install stage.

Then, more seriously, gnome-core compilation failed. Errors 
reproduced below. 

This is causing me serious problems. ./configure runs fine, reporting no 
problems. Can anyone point me in any direction to solve this? I've been at this 
problem for over a week solid now. and I don't like giving up!
