   Sonofagun! I learn something new each day.

   I think this is telling me something vital, but I'm not sure what to do
aobut it:

[rshepard at salmo ~]$ pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --modversion
Package cairo was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing airo.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'cairo', required by 'Pango Cairo', not found

[rshepard at salmo ~]$ locate cairo.pc

   Well, something gtk-ish is certainly torqued. I'm not sure how to fix it
all. I'll ask on the gtk mail list.

   Considering that adding export MALLOC_CHECK_=0 and specifing
/usr/bin/jpilot works, I'll try to focus on my Friday water quality lectures
and put fixing the mess I created lower on the priority list.

Thanks, Judd,
