I've been hacking around inside this problem during my downtime at work 
for days, now.  I'm trying the "gmake solution" now, but I've broken so 
many things (fontconfig, gtk1.x, gtk2.x, etc) trying to figure this out 
that I have to unbreak everything before I can see if using gmake in the 
WRKDIR fixes it for me, too.  I'll post updates as things become less 

Of all the (unsuccessful) things I was trying, running gmake wasn't even 
on my radar screen.  What made you think to try that??
