I based this off of the SDL conversation. The GNOME 2.16 merge will be
_much_ more involved since the PREFIX move will touch a lot of ports.
We were thinking of a full pointyhat regression. I'm all for a
pre-freeze commit if you think it's doable, but know that I will be
traveling in the UK for two weeks starting on the 23rd, so at least I
will be spotty when it comes to helping out with breakage.
