In order to get gnucash to compile, I need gtkhtml. I think at this point it's fair to say that gtkhtml is the worst library I have EVER tried to compile. First off, the dependancy list is big. It directly requires GAL, libcapplet, and some other obscure gnome libraries. These in turn require other things (pkg-config? what the...) And then, after all the dependencies are figured out, I try to compile it without GConf, which it says is entirely optional. But, no... It's not. When you try and compile --without-gconf, it then just decides that you really want it anyway and the compile bails badly. I would like this package shot. Now. This is just poor.
