I installed gnome-lib and I am trying to install Nautilus by now. 
Nautilus need Scrollkeeper and Scrollkeeper need a sgml2xml binary.
I installed the openjade and the OpenSl projects (as the configure 
script told me to do) but there is no sgml2xml program in it. So, I was 
wondering where to get this program.

I am not sure this is the kind of things that should appear on the 
blfs-support mailing list. Please tell if this is the case.

Thank you,
