By, which should be in whatever passes for libdir on your
system.  The first header you list _could_ be the right one, excepting
that if it is, it was installed in the _wrong_ prefix, since gnome-print
0.37 is a Gnome 1.x application, not Gnome 2.x.  ...and to make
_certain_ you get the point, I'll say again, you need gnome-print 0.37,
NOT the gnome-2 print packages, judging by the makefile output you

Obligatory comment that things would be magnitudes easier if the dratted
Gnome section adhered to FHS.
