 Good point, Marty.  Since it only optionally depends on parts of GNOME,
 (and not even ORBit), then it should probably go in /usr.  I'm looking at
 the file list that I installed with all the optional dependencies, and I
 don't think it would affect the gnome build.

 Everything is in /usr/include/gtk-html-2.0/libgtkhtml, a library in
 /usr/lib, and a .pc file in /usr/lib/pkgconfig.  I think it's safe to make
 /usr the default prefix, especially since this isn't really a GNOME
 specific application.

 I'm going to change this in the book if there aren't any objections.
