It looks like this affects both, the gladeui as well as the normal
glade stuff. Bad. I guess the installer won't work unless we find a
platform-independent way to define $LIBGLADE_MODULE_PATH somewhere.
.bashrc is not really an option because not everyone uses bash. We
*could* add a 'gladedir' variable to libxfcegui4-1.0.pc and use
export LIBGLADE_MODULE_PATH="$LIBGLADE_MODULE_PATH \
`pkg-config --variable=gladedir libxfcegui4-1.0.pc`"
in startxfce4 or the xinitrc script to define it. Any other ideas?
