Sorry to be dull here... IIUC, what you describe is the main difference between jhbuild and, say, apt-get install sugar on Ubuntu: in the later case, dependancies are taken care of by the .deb package whereas in the jhbuild case they are all integrated in the jhbuild source? Does that make sense? > Please note that we don't need to use sudo as all dependencies are > installed in a user-writable directory. Ok.
