query, but as of today, libglade-2.0.0 in in gnome2 due to a really dumb 
pkgconfig issue and gnome's ignoring of said pkgconfig setting.  I'm trying 
to leave libglade-0.17 and libxml in /usr.

Plan is to finish Gnome2 (hoping for no more surprises), then reveiw 
gcc-3.2, then gnome (which is done except for galeon and similar that need 
gconf to run.
