Okay, thanks.

And if I don't?  Will it still build?  I seem to recall trying that and
still getting the same error: I will try it again.

Where does the libglade-xgettext command come from?  Andrea hinted that
libglade-xgettext was from an old configuration of libglade and that
this doesn't need to happen.  On top of that, I searched the official
Slackware repositories, and there is only one libglade package.  The
Slackware development packages are in the d/ series, and I installed all
of them and have not removed anything in the d/ series.

I'll ask the same question I asked in my response to Andrea: is there
some configure option I can use that will not produce these
libglade-related errors?  I just tried it after configuring with
"--disable-themer" and I get the same error.
