I just recently tried to build guile-gtk from cvs.  It was very very
difficult.  Even after I got all the proper pieces I still had to edit
some files to build properly.  See the guile-gtk archives for some of my
adventures.  You don't need *all* of gnome, just some of the
configuration system.

Supposedly, all the extra gnome spooge is for CVS guile-gtk.  A released
tarball will already have ./configure built and should only need Guile,
Gtk+ and standard tools to compile and install.
