ok i guessed that, but it seems most the i386 folk have this included
automatically. I have been in contact with the ggi folk, but was not able to
contact the gnome folk, (not subscribed on their list, i did fill a bug report,
but got no answer yet...)

Is there an idea as starting from which version of glibc they are no more
automatically included ?

Is there other packages that have this problems ? i guess there are some that
the autobuilder FAILS for, is there someone who checks regularly the failures
of the autobuilder ?
