I sent an announcement to evolution-list but I think I used the wrong
address so it's hung up waiting for approval :-/.

I'll send you the makefile.  I really whacked the hell out of it trying
to get Evo 2.28 building on Ubuntu 8.04, which is pretty old...
eventually I got tired of adding packages to be rebuilt and gave up.  I
have it working on Ubuntu 9.04 but I think I still have library version
mismatches: building on Ubuntu 9.04 requires a newer libxml2... but
almost everything links with libxml2 and I didn't want to rebuild
"almost everything"; that means that some of the shared libraries I link
with expect the older libxml2 and some (the ones I rebuilt) expect the
newer one.  I suspect this is the cause of my pain here.

I might just wait a few weeks for Ubuntu 9.10 to be released, which
officially supports Evo 2.28, and should resolve at least this issue.
