No I haven't and I probably won't do anything with Gnome until version
3.0 comes out (Unless there is another significant delay). I got a few
things on the go atm outside of this project, i.e. <plug>
http://ai-contest.com/ </plug>. I'm happy for you to make any changes.
Once submitted into the book, I can ran an auto build to test for any
breaks, regardless of which version it is.
I really would like to see '--prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix
ORBit-2.0)' removed from all instructions, something that will have to
be done eventually once ORBit is removed.
I finally completed my x86_64 build on my new rig, the last 4 weeks
spent trying to get ICAClient(32bit) to work.
