Please, please, please...  I'm one of the FreeBSD port maintainers for
gnome, and half of the patching is to find, and And most of the rest is to put these files somewhere
other than lib/, which is not the right place in FreeBSD's world.

The correct place to look for them (* is in ${confexecdir},
which should be an configure option, and default to ${libdir}.  See
gnome-libs/  Unfortunately this is set by various Makefile's
in most packages...  If the configuration is centralised, then you don't
have to search, and it makes it much easier for cross-platform
