Well SuSE may be a bit slow on the gnome side. This distro is only about
one year old.

I tried to build webkitgtk. BUT: webkit requires libsoup-2.4 and the
distro only comes with libsoup-2.2, libsoup-2.4 requires glib 2.15.3
and the distro only comes with gilb 2.12.4.
This reminds me of the dependency hell we had in the early gnome days
(remember libguppy?).

Eventually I will upgrade to a newer distro, but for now I would prefer
to stay with SuSE 10.3.
