	Nor should it, it isn't run by a user, the capplet runs it, iirc.

	What was your prefix when building pilot-link? Did you use that
same prefix when building gnome-pilot and gnome-pilot-conduits? Did you
tell Evolution where to find both of those as well?

	If you don't see gnome-pilot report the version of pilot-link when
you configure it _before_ you build it, then you should stop there, and
figure out why. That's step 2 in the process, and you skipped that and
went all the way to the next few steps (building gnome-pilot-conduits and
Evolution), which compounded the problems.

	You should do a 'make uninstall' in each source tree, then
distclean, and start again. In short:

	pilot-link --prefix=/usr/local

	gnome-pilot --prefix=/usr --with-pisock=/usr/local

	gnome-pilot-conduits --prefix=/usr -with-pisock=/usr/local

	evolution --prefix=/usr --with-pisock=/usr/local \
		  --enable-pilot-conduits=yes            \

	Shot in the dark, but what does this show:

	gpilotd-control-applet --cap-id=1

	Dozens of others have used it without any issues. I'm sure it was
a local configuration problem on your end, easily resolved. I'll spend
some time and update my HOWTO to reflect the GNOME2 stuff and yank the
GNOME1 stuff.
