That's the thing that I want. I'll grab it and play with it.
A recent upgrade of bonobo-0.3.0 -> bonobo-1.0.9 has left me with binaries
that want previous versions of .so's. Alas, pulling out the gnomeprint .so's
out of the old .tgz isn't enough -- there are some other installed files that
it needs as well (fonts or something). I think that this is itself a bug in
gnomeprint. It should version number stuff like that.
I'm trying to build "Mr.Project"
