Startup Druid on Solaris

Not sure if this will make any sense, but here goes.

On Solaris, the configure script finds gnome-libs as shown below:

checking GNOME_LIBS... -L/opt/local/lib -lgnomeui-2 -lSM -lICE -lbonoboui-2 -lxml2 -lz -lsocket -lnsl -lgnomecanvas-2 -lgnome-2 -lpopt -lart_lgpl_2 -lpangoft2-1.0 -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -latk-1.0 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lm -lpangocairo-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lcairo -lbonobo-2 -lgconf-2 -lgnomevfs-2 -lbonobo-activation -lgmodule-2.0 -lORBit-2 -lgthread-2.0 -lpthread -lthread -lrt -lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0
checking for untested GNOME versions (libgnome >= 2.19.0)... no

Looking at the package config file this appears to be libgnome version 2.6.0.

Even though configure picks up the library, the druid cannot find it.

If I use truss I can see where its looking and if I then ln -s /path/ /path/to/where/its/looking then the Druid pops right up and I can set the gconf options so the Druid doesn't need to run again.

Instead of relying on the Sun supplied version of libgnome I thought I'd just compile up my own and stick where the Druid is already looking for it so the issue goes away.

So the question is, will  libgnomeui-2.19.1.tar.gz net my a so I can move past this.  I don't want to waste the time compiling it up for nothing.
