I'm finding on ARM that when GNOME goes through a major transition (e.g.
2.2-2.4 as now), the buildds sometimes attempt to build stuff in the
wrong order, so just getting the source and building it fixes the
apt-get source nautilus
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -B -uc
Then when it complains about missing build-depends, you install those;
if the right packages/versions aren't available, you build those from
source, etc. And if it doesn't build after all that, you file a bug.
Of course, this does take time...
(Oh - and yes, GNOME 2.4 runs quite nicely on a 200 MHz StrongARM. :-)
