Nice, but let's also get it to build fine in Ubuntu too.

Great! Although the bug about hardcoded /usr path seem to be by design
which means that I won't be able to build it anyway. :(

Unfortunately, not all distros are that wise. Other distros will
decide not to split it or split it differently exacerbating the problem
with figuring out missing dependencies (e.g. pkg-config complains
about missing gnome-disk-utility-libs, what Debian package should you
