I compiled today using the instructions in the release notes and 
everything went a-ok. The installation is simiple "./configure 
--prefix=/opt/gnome --disable-static && make && make install". Only 
problem was I needed to compile intltool in the begining. Also, if 
someone installs things in different prefixes, the PKG_CONFIG_PATH needs 
to be set pointing to the proper locations, but it becomes obvious as 
the configure script tells u to do that when it cannot find some library.
