Unfortunately, I am unable to find gnome-console in my source (1.37.30 or
1.37.31). Please upgrade to 1.37.30, which is released or pull the current
CVS. If you still have problems, I would appreciate it if you would give me
an exact pointer to the place in the Makefile or better yet Makefile.in and
There were one or two problems immediately after I deleted the gnome-console
directory, and perhaps you fell into that -- sorry.
