so fix that problem. ximian is not the correct solution to nautilus
not compiling on powerpc.

i *DID* use it on a stable potato system.  thats the system ximian
hosed.  only way to repair it was to --purge each and every package
originating from them and reinstall the debain proper packages.  

then i rebuilt some of the debian sid gnome packages so i could get
galeon running.  now everything works very well and very stable,
UNLIKE it did with the ximian crud.  and keep in mind this was x86,
the `ideal' configuration.
