O.T.: Using garnome to build gnome

My solution was to pull the Gnome 2.16 packages from experimental.  One
of the packages in experimental is pyorbit.  You will need it or need to
build it from source to get orca working in main stream Debian.

My solution for my work station is to switch it to Ubuntu.  That gives
me a stable Gnome 2.16 running on a Debian based system.

Hope this helps.
