Gwave seems to have come from the Debian "Electronics"
distro, and they have reported a bug pretty much what I have
reported here.  They also say that in order to build gwave from
the source, what is required are the guile-gnome2-* (specifically:
guile-gnome2-gtk) packages, which does not exist in the Fedora-9

Did someone forget to include the guile-gnome2-* support packages
to the F9+ repository, went ahead and built a broken gwave for F9
and up?  Where or when can I get guile-gnaome2-* packages, please?
