Yes, I don't like the symlink solution either, but I thought it was best
to rush out a quick fix rather than holding back and doing a proper
patch.  That way it gives other people a chance to try out a working
build and maybe improve upon it. Later down the track I'll come back to
it (if no one beats me to it first;). Apart from GDM, I haven't had a
chance to look at any other additional gnome package yet. I think I have
underestimated the time needed to go through the whole gnome suite.
