[clug-talk] Problems compiling Gnome

I've been trying to compile Gnome 2.12 using garnome and jhbuild, but
I've been running into problems with both systems. Using jhbuild I get
the following error:

cvs -z3 -q -d :ext:jamesh at cvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome checkout -P -d
libxml2 -A gnome-xml
connect to address port 544: Connection timed out
connect to address port 544: Connection timed out
trying normal rsh (/usr/bin/rsh)
container.gnome.org: Connection timed out
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages
if any)
*** error during stage checkout of libxml2: could not update module ***

I was having the same sort of errors yesterday checking code out of the
freedesktop.org cvs repository. I found some instructions on the web
using a different server, so I was able to check the code out myself. I
figured it was a problem with freedesktop.org's cvs server. However
seeing as I'm having the same type of issues with the gnome.org cvs,
there seems to be a larger problem here. When trying to compile with
Garnome, I get the following error:

cairosimple.o(.text+0x1fd): In function `main':
cairosimple.c: undefined reference to `cairo_surface_write_to_png'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[6]: *** [cairosimple] Error 1
make[6]: Leaving directory
make[5]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: *** [../../platform/gtk+/cookies/main.d/install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/test/garnome-'
make: *** [install] Error 2

If anyone has any ideas about how to fix either of these problems, it
would be much appreciated.
