Mmmh. I just checked. The reason why gtk-- is currently w/o gnome support
is, because I never installed libgnome-dev I think. I'm just doing it now
and will recompile gtk-- (or better: I'll try to compile gtk-- 0.9.17) with
gnome support.

Any reasons why we would need two versions, one without and one with gnome

Does anybody know if it matters if I build against libungif dev or libgif
dev? What should I build with?

Thank you,
