Hi all,

the following problems have I found in my installation:

- Using the project wizard and creating an new project based on 
"C->GNOME->GNOME 1 Application Framework" I will get during 
autoconfigure this
german error message, english comments from me are behind each line:

> cd '/home/timo/hellognomeworld3' && WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" 
> WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" make -f Makefile.cvs && mkdir 
> '/home/timo/hellognomeworld3/debug' && cd 
> '/home/timo/hellognomeworld3/debug' && CFLAGS="-O0 -g3" 
> "/home/timo/hellognomeworld3/configure" --enable-debug=full && cd 
> '/home/timo/hellognomeworld3/debug' && WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" 
> WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" make -k
> srcdir=`pwd` NOCONFIGURE=1 sh macros/
> sh: macros/ Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden # means 
> file or directory not found
> make: *** [all] Fehler 127 # means error 127
> *** Beendet mit Status: 2 *** # means ended with state 2

How can I fix this problem?

- How can I create an index about several GNOME specific documentations? 
For example I tried to get an index of the GTK2 documentation. One time 
I tried it via a doxygen entry and pointed kdevelop to the index.html 
file. After this I activated it in all three columns of the list (TOC, 
search, index). Then if I search  for e.g. g_slist_free in the 
documentation index, I will get many items. IMHO it is regardless which 
search term I give in, I'll get a really long list with all index words 
of this documentation.
The other time, I unpacked the gtk.devhelp file of gtk.devhelp.gz in the 
directory of the GTK documentation. Then I created a new devhelp entry 
pointing to the gtk.devhelp file. I also activated this item for all 
three categories. Then if I search now for e.g. g_slist_free I will get 
the same list as by the previous attempt. The only thing I want is a 
short link to the documentation of this method - even if this is only 
one line long, as it is in g_slist_free ;-) This is done for example in 
Anjuta: move cursor to keyword->right click->context help->and the 
corresponding line in devhelp will be shown.

- Many thanks in advance for your answers!
