I don't call linc directly, and I'm pretty sure I only use public APIs.
Autoconf picks up the set of libraries to link against via pkg-config.

My just has


When I build on RedHat, GNOFRACT4D_LIBS expands to
-lgnomeui-2 -lSM -lICE -lbonoboui-2 -lgnomecanvas-2 -lgnome-2
-lart_lgpl_2 -lpangoft2-1.0 -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -latk-1.0
-lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lpangoxft-1.0 -lpangox-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lbonobo-2
-lgconf-2 -lgnomevfs-2 -lbonobo-activation -lORBit-2 /usr/lib/
-lz -lm /usr/lib/ -lgmodule-2.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lgthread-2.0
-lglib-2.0 -ldl -lpthread

If there's some way I can ditch all this and have the GUI still work
that'd be great, but my understanding is GnomeUI requires Bonobo
requires Orbit requires linc, and I'm stuck with it. Is that not true?
