Hi again...  sorry to drag this out again, but I have a stab whenever I 
have time, and, well...  not a lot of time around here recently, but 
this week's been different...  :)

I've taken a big look into fink (fink.sf.net) at sourceforge, and it's 
rather neat...  they have all the stuff ported that I believe we 
need...  altho the gnome-print and gal packages they have are classified 
as "unstable"...  beeeerk, who cares...  nothing is ever "stable" as far 
as I'm concerned...  so am now in the position where I can do a 
./configure for gnomesword and it doesn't complain...  compiling is a 
different matter...  complains in:

gs_setup.c:1308: bad macro argument list
cpp-precomp: warning: errors during smart preprocessing, retrying in 
basic mode
make[2]: *** [gs_setup.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

and then it stops, of course...  is there more info I should post?  
using OS X 10.1.1, and gal 0.18.1 and gnome-print 0.32 if that helps?  
am not quite thinking properly atm (sleepy) so shall fix that before 
trying to fix other stuff...  :)  it is nice being able to use gnumeric 
on this machine, tho...  :)

	nic...  :)
