I've come across a few build bugs that seem to hang around for a long
time (some only show up for --enable-gtk-docs, so I guess lots of folk
building from CVS don't generally enable gtk-docs. In other cases, I
have no idea why no-one else seems to notice them).
Generally these problems are trivially fixable - so assuming that I
think I've found a problem and worked out how to fix it:
Question 1: Is it most appropriate to send an email to one of the
maintainers, file a bug, email the mailing list, or none of the above.
Question 2: Should one _always_ send a patch, or for very trivial fixes
it is appropriate to say 'Hey you need to stick a AC_PROG_RANLIB in your
main configure.in file', and let the person who's going to fix it edit
(for elucidation the example in question 2 pertains to sodipodi HEAD.
Another build problem example is libegg HEAD where files in the doc
subdir refer to eggcellrendererpixbuf.h which was deleted late december.)
