Please file this as a bug under the gnome-common module and I will get
to it. That way it won't get overlooked. I am not completely convinced
of the benefits of the change, since most modules force you to be in the
srcdir anyway when you are running It is only when running
configure on its own that you can be in another directory, so I am not
sure how you can arrive at the state where you are running in the wrong

But file it anyway -- I do not want to think about it just now.
