Hey Amaya,
	Take a look at seti-applet's .server file which gets installed
under /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/. Some upstreams have a habit of
shipping their tarballs with a preset path instead of letting GNU Make
regenerating it from the .in with the path you specified using
./configure. Hope this helps.

Yours sincerely,
