It certainly seems that way, but I've been digging deeper and I'm not
sure that libgpilotd and gpilotd are particularly separable. They share
a large set of common CORBA sources and I can't find a way to make
automake happy with pulling in source or object files from a different
I'm tagging this help in the hope that someone with more knowledge of
and patience for automake may have a better idea of how to accomplish
separating the CORBA stuff and one or two other common files in an

Upstream is currently away working on Evolution (which, incidentally, is
trivially easy to compile without gpilotd). I expect they'll be back,
but "when" is still the big question.
I'm not sure I agree with the notion that three unresolved symbols in
a library that should never be used independently of the library
providing them is a major bug; however, that is, obviously, the RM's
call. With luck, someone who is able to wrangle automake can assist.
