good going so far...

I suspect that your installation of gnome-pilot has not gone into the
same place on the system as your distribution-supplied version.  For
item 1), you should find the file "GNOME_PilotApplet.server".  This
contains the pathnames for the panel applet.  You have probably got one
installed under /lib/bonobo/servers/ and you may have another (your new
one) installed under /usr/local/lib/....

Item 2) is similar.  Your evolution install is probably compiled to put
its conduit definition files into /usr/share/gnome-pilot/conduits/,
whereas your new gnome-pilot may be looking for them
under /usr/local/share/...  If so, you may just be able to copy the
system installed evolution files called e-address.conduit,
e-todo.conduit, etc, into /usr/local/share/gnome-pilot/conduits/

It's probably safer to keep your (new) gnome-pilot under /usr/local
rather than /usr, unless you know what you are doing, as you are likely
to confuse your package manager!
