Actually, Jamie is right (i.e. i'll be applying a mod of his patch shortly):
[dom@psk-60 wv]$ gnome-config --libs-only-L
[dom@psk-60 wv]$ gnome-config --libs-only-L gnome gal
-rdynamic -L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib
[dom@psk-60 wv]$ gnome-config --libdir
I'll be going with 'gnome-config --libs-only-L ...' solution
For the record, yes 'gnome-config --libs' does produce other dependencies
that we may/may not need. That's why we can't use it in release builds.
'gnome-config --libs-only-L' and '--libs-only-l' was the solution I used.
Jamie's patch doesn't alter this behavior at all.
