The previous -gtk version already renamed them (s/-gnome-/-gtk-/).  The
problem is that you said the patch for the .desktop file has to be in
../distcc/patches/.  This patch replaced s/-gnome-/-gtk-/ in the
.desktop file, but would then apply to all three packages, also the
-gnome one.  

I'll look into doing this using SUBST, in distcc-gtk/Makefile, then the
problem will be gone.
