In general, I don't think building just a few packages is something
that we recommend, though certainly it can be a lot faster and easier.

 - The success depends on the Jhbuild moduleset closely matching
   what's on the system. Which should work right now with GNOME-2.22
   based distros like Hardy, or with Fedora 9 betas, but not with most
   other distros.

 - It's hard/impossible to get the system installed libraries to 
   find the jhbuild stuff at times. For example, I suspect that your
   bigboard panel applet isn't working because Bonobo-activation
   can't find it.

So, maybe it doesn't belong on the wiki, though I'm glad you got it
