I've bumped the pre-release to v2.  Get the updated tarball from:

This fixes HAL -- we don't rely on the canned HAL pda match rules,
and instead continue to use the devices.xml file shipped with
gnome-pilot.  This seems to be more robust.  I also added in a
short sleep to avoid calling libpisock before the usbserial device is
ready.  I haven't tried using libusb yet.

I've added macros/compiler-flags.m4 to the gnome-pilot tarball.

?? I'm not sure I follow, but do you mean that there were some issues
with overriding paths with ./configure switches?

Sorry 'bout that, but thanks for the feedback.

If you want to try out HAL support, I'd try grabbing the pre2 tarball,
which is up at:
