Jhbuild headaches

I’ve spent the last day or so wrestling with Jhbuild, Gnome’s build-from-SVN program. I thought “All I want is to build Evolution, it’s all I ask.” Nah, that would be too easy!

There’s a reason that they say trunk is unstable. I’ve had more build errors trying to get jhbuild to do a clean run on Evolution than I did trying to compile everything from source on Fedora Core 4.

I’ll post problems I encounter and their solutions, assuming I manage to get this thing built finally. It might be easier just to grab Fedora’s srpms. Meh, I’m a developer, let’s take the hard way.
