[PATCH] GNOME 2: HIGify welcome dialog.

Just as a side note on this topic:

I just installed SuSE 9.1 and tried to compile GnuCash (stable branch first).
Almost all packages needed are included in the distribution, but they don't
get installed by default. There is an installation option for full gnome and
for developement, but apparently this installs gnome2 devel packages only.

To compile GnuCash I had to install quite a few gnome devel packages manually.
Guppi is not included in SuSE 9.1. There are Guppi DLLs in the GnuCash 1.8.8
package that comes with SuSE 9.1 but no guppi-devel. OK, I compiled this
from source like I did in the old 1.6 days ... There was another problem
with slib: slib comes as version 3a1 and caused a compilation error. I
installed 2d4 and this worked fine.

gtk2 on SuSE 9.1 is version 2.2.4. I am a little concerned about the missing
guppi. We should have a gnome 2 GnuCash ready when major distibutions drop
more of gnome 1 support ...
