Re: GMAE build for libgsf

After thinking about the subject a little bit more, to drop bonobo
support from libgsf would be too radical. So I coded a small patch to
make the support optional and attached it to bug #442205

In my opinion it's the less intrusive solution.

Best Regards, Etrunko.

AbiWord doesn't require Bonobo, though there are various bits that it
may optionally use. The case mentioned below is dead code and can be
safely removed. Other places should live behind a conditional such as
"#ifdef HAVE_BONOBO". If they don't, that can be considered a bug and
should be fixed.

I also wonder if it might make sense to start a libgsf backend that
supports GVFS in the nearish future.
