To build Nautilus without interfering with an existing Gnome install,
you will need to build several components from CVS into a separate
For example, you could install these components into /usr/local/gnome2
or /usr/local/nautilus. Do do this, make sure to specify these with

m4 macro issues:
m4 macros have issues. Trying to install multiple versions of them on you system can be very tricky.
While building these libraries you will place following m4 macros into "your prefix"/share/aclocal
directory. Note you will generally get errors with -I
One ugly but functional way to make this work is to symlink your system m4 files into your
First you need to make the directory where they will live.
mkdir -p "your prefix"/share/aclocal
Then you need to link all the m4 files from your system aclocal directory to the new one.
for file in `ls /usr/share/alocal/*m4`
ln -s $file "your prefix"/share/aclocal/
Then you want to remove the m4 file for any of the things you are building.
