The error you get often means that a certain library isn't linked in.

I haven't tried this out or anything but I'm going to guess that gnome_init
is in the library, and I don't see a -lgnome on the link
command that's executed. I do see a lot of repeated -lm -ldl -lz on the
line. I wonder why it does that, you only need to pass it once. Bug in a
Makefile perhaps, or whatever.

I also see a error regarding gdk_pixbuf* not being found, and this probably
is caused by a missing -lgdk_pixbuf link option.

You could try to compile the package by running:
	make LDFLAGS="-lgnome -lgdk_pixbuf"

That assumes the Makefile files listen to the LDFLAGS variable. If not,
you'll have to edit the eel-1.0.2/eel/Makefile file yourself and look for
the proper place to add extra libraries. If you need help with that, email
the eel-1.0.2/eel/Makefile file and we can have a look.
