Ok, feel free to report your findings to the gnumeric mailing list
(gnumeric-list gnome org).  I'm not personally aware of anything left out by
the "make install" process, but there was one small glitch in the CVS tree a
couple of months ago that was fixed before the next release.

I'm doing what I can to merge my changes back into GNOME CVS, but I only have a
limited amount of time to do so given job constraints.
