Thanks for pointing this out, I may have forgotten to include it in the
spec file, will investigate on Monday...

This will only *appear* to work at a guess, ORBit2 it designed for
GNOME2, ORBit for GNOME1, they have provide functions with the same
names for linking against, but it doesn't mean they're interchangeable.

That's a bit of a brash statement, whether a system has GNOME2 installed
or not is irrelevant, the question is: does it have the necessary GNOME1
libraries installed? The answer here *should* be yes, but apparently in
your case is not. I'll investigate this on Monday too, see if I can
come up with an answer for you.
