Please also chown the directories (not that it really makes much 
difference, it's just cleaner).

Hmmm. What about the other config files? Are they no longer needed or 
should I include them in the rootskel-gtk udeb?

I am talking about:

They worked for your homemade image before, right? Could you investigate a 
bit (e.g. by comparing what is in ./build/tmp/gtk-miniiso/tree with what 
was in your own CD)?

I think we should spend a bit more time on this. Maybe we could get 
Alastair to include a -dev package (deb, not udeb) against which we can 
compile the frontend? Would that help?

If we can not get it working otherwise, yes.

IMO, the more we can get working (including fonts) in an "official" way, 
the easier it will be to make improvements, get help and check for 
regressions later on.

Me too. At least now things are manageable and we all know where we stand.
