I use the package heavily, my entire work is based on it. I also tried to
build it from source, but it's looking for fairly old versions of some
gnomemm/gtkmm libraries. I do have the FC4 versions of those libraries
installed, which are the the latest stable (not development), so from what
I can tell, glademm has not kept up with gnomemm and gtkmm. I'd even be
very willing to modify the code, if necessary, and compile it against the
new libraries, but I know nothing about automake and autoconf.
If someone is willing to give it a try with packaging, I'll help in any
way I can.
