	Since you asked I'll let you know that I pulled down the
gnomesword-2.1.10 and it configured with the same switches I used on the
older version without problem which leads me to believe it no longer
uses gnome-print. The first make failed with errors that looked like
they were 64 bit related in some spelling code. I hadn't bothered
looking at the possible configure options before but since the make
failed I did and found a number of options that would tell it to build
against a particular web browser. I am using SeaMonkey which had a
switch so I did a make clean and re-ran the configure with the extra
switch and the make ran to completion. Unfortunately, it throws up a
frame with partial content and locks up. It did leave a trace behind so
I'll work on it a bit longer and see what I find.
