some checks are done against version 2.6.3 vs 2.6.2.
however, the build will fail with libwnck-

i'd to apply the following patch in order to successfully build
this package:

Gar, that sucks.  I didn't know there was a  2.6.2 still
has the old version of wnck_window_close,

this means that wnck is rather broken for changing API in a patchlevel
release.  i would vote for considering to be 2.6.3, unless you want to
define an extra macro, e.g., HEY_I_AM_BROKEN.

and our version checking
macros don't support four-part version numbers.  Any advice on how
to proceed?

maybe doing extra checking with autoconf ?
the pkgconfig file has a "Version:" field.

ExtUtils::PkgConfig::modversion() should return in that case.
