With Eric Fischer's help, we got Nautilus to build on a FreeBSD
4.2-RELASE machine we have here.

Pavel and I then spent a while trying to debug why Nautilus didn't come
up, while the test programs for everything (bonobo, oaf, gnome-vfs)
worked fine on their own.

Part of the problem we had was that we couldn't even get gdb to work. 
It would just hang and then print a bogus stack.  So we need help from
hardcore FreeBSD hackers to get thing going probably.

The only thing i did today is checkin part of Eric's patch which
happened to be in a CVS tree that I was doing cleanup on. 
Unfortunately, part of Eric's patch has rotten because of ongoing
feature work in Nautilus.
