I'm not really reverting that revision.  As it was prior to that 
revision, I can see it not working under many circumstances.  Namely, if 
${component} appears more than once in ${_USE_GNOME} - something that 
will happen frequently - the test will not work.

My revision seems the obvious way to do it to me, but I can see that if 
someone was working with what Joe was working with, that one could be 
lead to think up his revision.  I know that I myself have missed the 
obvious in many circumstance.
