Let's start by filing this in bugzilla on the gnome side, so it can be
tracked and someone can add useful comments, patches and other metadata
to it.

..and I'm guilty of not filing these either. I'll see what I can do. I
need to set aside a chunk of time and really pour through this and do
some aggressive testing before I file these as "current" bugs. 

I can take a swag at poking at distclean.. not sure about rpath and
friends, but if I see something obvious, I'll do what I can to help. The
problem there is that it seems to inherit the settings of any existing
gnome-pilot install on the machine, and prepends those to the libtool

One thing at a time, we'll get there.
