Thanks for your work there. However, whilst forcing CFLAGS and LDFLAGS
in debian/rules will make the package build, it will cause every binary
in the package to be linked against libgnomeui-2.0, won't it? This will
then mean that all the final binary packages will pull in the libgnomeui
dependency even if they don't need them.

I think the correct way to fix this is to modify configure.ac and use
PKG_CHECK_MODULES to get the LDFLAGS and CFLAGS for libgnomeui-2.0 and
export them in such a way that only uim-toolbar-applet is linked against
this library. With this method, the only binary package which will
depend on libgnomeui will be uim-applet-gnome. Do you agree?

Would you mind working on this? (or perhaps checking if it is still an
issue in uim 1.5.6)

Thanks :)
