I am trying to build the gnome metapackage. I tried pkgsrc-current 
first, but as it failed, I checked out the 2006Q2 branch to see if it 
was any better.
I am doing a completely default build.

It fails when trying to build gtkhtml38:

checking for GIT_CFLAGS...
checking for GIT_LIBS...
gnome-config: not found
configure: error: Package requirements (gnome-icon-theme >= 1.2.0) were 
not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively you may set the GIT_CFLAGS and GIT_LIBS environment variables
to avoid the need to call pkg-config.  See the pkg-config man page for
more details.

I suppose I should attempt to do what it tries to tell me to do to get 
around this problem, but I wonder why this even turns up? I have never 
had this kind of problems in the past? What should I set GIT_CFLAGS and
