hi,
i recently wanted to install evince.i do not have gnome(i have xfce and
kde).i installed all evince dependencies except libgnomeui.
when  i saw the (pretty long)dependency list of libgnomeui(since i dont have
gnome) and the shortage of space on my system,i thought about using fedora's
libgnomeui library.
problem is that libgnomeui is itself dynamically linked to a host of other
shared libs,some of which do not exist on my system.

running an ldd on fedora's libgnomeui showed this

/mnt/sda3/usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.so.0.1600.0:

i do not not have the  disk space to build all of the "not found"
libs.Willcreating symlinks to them in /usr/lib be good enough?or will
it screw up the
system  later?
