Hmm. I've given up trying to maintain two different GNOME installs (debs and
CVS-built), and installing another couple of Debian devel packages seemed to
sort everything out; it seems I was getting lots and lots of problems solely
because the imlib aclocal files weren't available. It seems very odd -
confusing to the point of a bug - that a couple of missing files should
cause such a large number of totally unrelated messages, but that's a
different issue [1].

Anyway, that solved that problem. Thanks to everyone who pointed out where I
was going wrong.

[1] Can't autoconf/automake complain about a missing macros file rather than
ignore it and subsequently complain about undefined macros?
