Since it's been ignored for the past year and some days, I've just

I believe this is not a bug, but a misconfiguration with the exception
of icons in GDM.

On my last build, I had symlinked /opt/gnome/share/icons ->
../../../usr/share/icons prior to installing any gnome packages.

echo "${GNOME_PREFIX}/share/aclocal" >> /usr/share/aclocal/dirlist
