Thanks for your efforts, Eric. As you may have noted from the commit
messages, in the last days, I have converted a few GNOME packages to now
use buildlink. I do have several in the works, but they still need some
brushing up before committing. The packages I've been working on (that
are not yet committed) are:
I will probably be working on others as well, but it might be a good
idea to coordinate efforts here.

At the first glance, this looks okay. I trust you have tested this

That's fine with me, but please see the above list for packages that
are already in the works. In order to coordinate efforts, it might be a
good idea if you sent me (in private mail) the list of packages you are
currently working on (or plan to work on soon). I will do so as well,
so we can avoid duplicate work.
