I still have some problems with compiling of some problems and the
questions is, what should I do in such cases?

1) Write a mail to tech-pkg?
2) Write a mail to the maintainer?
3) ?
4) Fix it myself? Unfortunatly this is very unlikely.

The programs in question:

all programs which depend on gnome-vfs:
In file included from gnome-vfs-mime-private.h:26,
                 from gnome-vfs-application-registry.c:32:

or dir

Only a checksum error. I already know this is because the original
programmer changes the download files without giving them a new name.
Renaming the distinfo file works, but is also a security problem.
