I finally got both environments set up properly and got to make distcheck -- and both failed. The first round of problems is that trunk has some files that are in POTFILES.skip but are also distributed (that's after fixing an oversight when I added the scheme files to POTfILES.skip). 2.4 fails configure (configure: error: Cannot find Glib Gettext.  Maybe you need to install the gettext package?) when in built from the tarball-created dist directory.

It's way past bedtime now, so I'll have at it tomorrow.
