The CORBA servers are almost libgnome-independant, they just use the GOAD library to register
themselves in the gnome name service, so we could add a compilation flag (-DWITH_GNOME) to use
it or just use plain ORBit API.

The rest of the suite is highly GNOME-dependant, so you may prefer to write a CORBA client of
your own by using the IDL files. Although, it could be interesting to also have the client
library (only the client library, not the widget lib) libgnome-independant, but I must have a
look at it...
