Unfortunately this isn't quite sufficient either.  I can't remember now,
but there are still a number of libraries that will not end up being
upgraded through installing g-d-e.  I ended up grubbing through all the
packages matching libg* and *gnome* and installing any that had 2.6.x
versions available.

There's probably a better way, but perhaps we should tighten the
dependencies to ensure that everything needed for a full upgrade gets
dragged in.
