    And fix make distcheck.
    
    Although libnautilus-private seem self contained, it was actually
    depending on the files on src/ for dnd.
    Not only that, but files in libnautilus-private also were depending on
    dnd files, which you can guess it's wrong.
    
    Before the desktop split, this was working because the files were
    distributed, but now was a problem since we reestructured the code, and
    now nautilus being a library make distcheck stop working.
    
    First solution was try to fix this inter dependency of files, but at
    some point I realized that there was no real point on splitting some of
    those files, because for example, is perfectly fine for dnd to need to
    access the window functions, and it's perfectly fine for the widgets
    in the private library to need to access to all dnd functions.
    
    So seems to me the private library of nautilus is somehow an artificial
    split, which provides more problems than solutions.
    
    We needed libnautilus-private to have a private library that we could
    isolate from extensions, but I don't think it worth given the problems
    it provides, and also, this not so good logical split.
    Right now, since with the desktop split we created a libnautilus to be
    used by the desktop part of nautilus, extensions have access to all
    the API of nautilus. We will think in future how this can be handled if
    we want.
    
    So for now, merge the libnautilus-private into src, and let's rethink
    a better logic to split the code and the private parts of nautilus than
    what we had.
    
    Thanks a lot to Rafael Fonseca for helping in get this done.
