Okay!  I wasn't aware of gnome-common, which I assume is what you're
referring to.

According to the README in gnome-common...

    When we're outside the GNOME CVS Tree we simply need to tell
    aclocal that it should also look in `$(datadir)/aclocal/gnome' and
    it will find all the macros.

Does this mean that gnome-common can actually be installed, or should
I always copy things from it into gnome-cvs applications?
