So far I've had to make a few modifications to /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ :

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/autogen.sh 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
The latter should be removed and is an artifact of older versioning
II. Problems compiling RELEASE
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
