We are working on a model based intelligent fuzzer for text

we were looking at was iCalendar file format. We are trying

bugs. However wee have run into a few problems.
We installed ubuntu 6.06 on a machine (Evolution 2.6.1) and
downloaded Evolution client 2.6.0 source code. The idea was
to compile only the 2.6.0 client (with the bug) and use
the rest of the installed system.
1) we set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to "/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/home/benkam/
2) we added /home/benkam/evolution/lib/bonobo/servers to /etc/bonobo-
3) used ./configure --prefix=/home/benkam/evolution

tracing calls into several key files that are compiled into the

to believe that the 2.6.1 libraries are being called from the globally
Could anyone give any pointers to what we we did wrong, and how we can
a local 2.6.0 copy running?
