I was building from CVS, so all I know is that there was some header
which was missing during a compile.  This was a couple of months ago,
and unfortunately I don't remember the details.

GOB sounds familiar.  However, that's just the point: the FAQ
<URL:> doesn't say
anything about GOB.

If people (like me) who haven't been tracking the development releases
for GNOME are to have a chance of building it (as opposed to
installing from binary packages), then there's a need at least for
something equivalent to the section in the FAQ.  

It needn't be dependencies (although that would be nicest), it could
just be a list of modules that just about everything else is going to
need (like ORBit, glib, gtk+, and, I presume, GOB).

Yes, I'm not updating anything at the moment.
