Thanks for that Chavdar.  When I searched the list of all packages 
for that package I used the string 'pygobject' and didn't find it.  :(

Installing the py-gobject-shared package was the final step required; 
now OOF2 will install.

Any thoughts on why gnome-config is required on the machine whose 
packages were installed from precompiled binaries but not on the 
machine where they were built from source?

To make sure I wasn't mistaken, I started again with a fresh install 
of NetBSD 3.1 and the 2007Q2 pkgsrc tar ball.  After installing these 

(then link /usr/pkg/bin/python to /usr/pkg/bin/python2.4)

there's no gnome-config command on the system but OOF2 installs happily.

I noticed py-gobject-shared is installed, I think as a result of 
installing py-gtk2, but it wasn't on my installed-from-binaries 
machine until I installed it explicitly.

libgnome isn't in the list pkg_info produces.
