Convert all core GNOME1 components and some of the most popular GNOME1
apps to The goal is to make GNOME1 framework more modular,
which will allow to use GNOME1 apps with GNOME2 desktop as well as considerably
reduce langht of dependency chains for GNOME1 ports (for example after this
commit AbiWord's dependency chain was reduced by 7 ports from 57 to only
50, while Gnumeric's - from 60 to 53 and so on).

The most of the GNOME1 apps are still not converted, so that lot of work is
still ahead.

Please report any unusual problems to

Split gdk-pixbuf into the non-GNOME part (gdk-pixbuf) and the   GNOME part
(gnomecanvas) to allow for other ports to access   the lower level parts of
gdk-pixbuf without the "excess baggage"   of even a minimal GNOME environment.
