Hi bart once more,

Yes, once again you are absolutely right.
I didn't notice this yet because I usually install software from source
code using checkinstall (
Thereby I can be sure that I can safely uninstall it no matter which
build system was used.
I only saw configure and associated autotools which was wrong.

[snip error messages]

Unfortunately these error messages do not contain the commandline which
calls the compiler.
To me it looks like a missing -I (preprocessor include path) which would
point to a bug in ruby-gnome2's configure scripts (maybe this is due to
the uncommon /opt path? but pkg-config should catch that... hmmm?).
If you want me to debug this please send me all the output which is
generated after you type 'make'.

These should suffice.

Bart, I'm sorry you have all these inconviniences.
But after all I do not really feel responsible for these issues. ;)
Please note however that Visecas does not depend on GNOME as a whole but
only on libgtk2 and libglade2 (+ Ruby bindings which admittedly seem to
be the problem here).
I deliberately avoided any further dependencies.
I must admit that ruby-gnome2 is not as popular as say
pygtk/gnome-python which is a pitty.
Maybe Visecas' development will result in ruby-gnome2's packages being
added to all of the major distributions. :-)
