Okay...digging into it a bit.  Gnome-settings-daemon and ConsoleKit will 
both need to provide the libexec dir in their pc files, they currently 
do not.  So those changes will have to be made and then we can do swap 
@LIBEXECDIR@ for @GSD_LIBEXECDIR@ and @CK_LIBEXECDIR@ in the relative files in the gdm sourcetree.  It looks like a lot of the 
gnome packages should include a libexecdir variable in the pc files, but 
currently do not.
