yes, all the applications currently need to use the same
sysconfigdir.  The reason is that the information about the CORBA
services is stored in $(sysconfigdir)/CORBA/servers.

I have now added to CVS support for the GNOME_PATH directory.  With
this variable you will be able to list all of the places where GNOME
products have been installed.

Currently only the gnome-config program and the GNORBA tools are
using.  In the future the gnome-mime tools should use it.
