Hey Gary,

I had a set of patches which fix these issues. They are attached
on this bug.

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=314946

This was specifically done for the OSX build and somehow
failed on linux. I never really got around to checking why.

Cheers,
Shreyas

Just ignore the warnings. The way to avoid them would be to
restructure the code, and that isn't happening soon (?). What they
warn against works fine on all platforms that Evolution runs on anyway
(Linux, Solaris, maybe other ELF-based POSIX systems, Windows).

If Evolution would be ported to some other kind of system (non-ELF
POSIXes like (older?) AIX or HP-UX, OpenVMS, etc), there are more
serious things that need fixing, like the circular dependencies
between shared libraries.
