eek! don't do that.
To get the pc file installed in the right place you have two

1) Use PKG_CONFIG_PATH to define a new path for pkg-config (not
   reccomended if there are things in the main path)

2) Make sure you configure/ libgsf with the right prefix.
   The default is /usr/local where as you will want /usr to match

  * Then, I had to add a symlink
      libgnomeprint-2.0.pc -> libgnomeprint-2.2.pc
    because gnumeric had said it required:
      libgnomeprint-2.2 >= 2.2.0 
    but also complained:
      ... Package libgnomeprint-2.0 was not found in...
      Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnomeprint-2.0.pc'
      to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

eek again! don't do that.  libgnomeprint-2.2 has api/name changes
from the 2.0 versions.  They are definitely different.

Now, it's complaining about libgal2.0, which brings me back to the
"apt-get" error that won't let me install gnumeric via "apt-get":

libgal2.0-dev: Depends: libgal2.0-1 (= 1.99.2-3.1) but it is not installable

Package libgal2.0-1 has no available version, but exists in the database.
Make sure you have libgal2.0
not libgal2-0

The latter should be removed and is an artifact of older versioning

II. Problems compiling RELEASE
------------------------------- complains:
The first I don't understand.
The second I keep doing and it keeps asking anyway. I have automake 1.7
and have removed all older versions to get rid of other errors.
The third I also don't understand how I would use.

I have no idea.  Things build fine for me on a sid install, but then
again my dev environment builds all of gnome from libxml on up from

Good Luck.
