[Rhythmbox-devel] Compiling without libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.la

Hi there, I just made the somewhat unfortunate decision to upgrade to
Ubuntu 10.10, where they decided to remove the .la files for
gdk-pixbuf. As a result, Rhythmbox 0.13.3 won't compile now. I don't
know much about how the libtool mechanism works, but installing
gdk-pixbuf from source into /usr/local didn't help things any, as the
compilation process still tries to use the packaged files in /usr/lib
(without the .la files). I also tried telling configure where to find
the pkg-config info for the gdk-pixbuf I installed into /usr/local but
it made no difference. I'd appreciate any guidance on how to get
around this, although I know supporting every single distro isn't what
you guys want to be doing.

Here's the error output, FWIW:
