first of all -- thanks for trying to compile lumiera on Ubuntu 10.4 !
Let me just explain the situation with the Gnome Docking Library. Formerly,
this was intended to become a "Gnome Design Library" and was closely coupled
to the GTK Interface builder and the Gnome Desktop. But this plan somewhat
stalled, and then other developers, most notably from the Anjuta project
recognized some features very usable for building advanced GUIs. If I
recall correct, at that time also our GUI developer, Joel Holdsworth
joined this effort and helped to remove the heavyweight dependencies.
Moreover, he improved the behaviour of the docking windows -- and
this is what we rely on in the current lumiera GUI.
These improvements are sort of "official", i.e. they went back into
mainline and should be included in any lib GDL starting with 2.27.1
Now, as Debian (stable) is our reference system, and Lenny still has GDL 0.7,
as an interims solution we created a custom package based on the code level
we rely on. This package is called gdl-lum, so it can be installed alongside
with the "official" GDL.
Both build systems (SCons and Autotools) should check the version and just
pick up what's appropriate. Thus, you should be able just to compile Lumiera
