Building Galeon from source

I'm trying to build Galeon from source and am now at the end of my wits. ./configure keeps complaining that mozilla not found. I won't bore you with everything I tried but here's where I'm at right now

I built mozilla rc1 from source. I'm using this right now

In I added /opt/gnome/lib/mozilla then did ldconfig

# export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/opt/gnome/bin/mozilla
# export MOZILLA_HOME=/opt/gnome/bin/mozilla

# ./configure --with-mozilla-includes=/opt/gnome/include/mozilla --with-mozilla-libs=/opt/gnome/lib/mozilla --with-mozilla-home=/opt/gnome/bin/mozilla

Here's the tail of the error:

Error on option --get-default-source: unknown option.
Run 'gconftool-1 --help' to see a full list of available command line options.
Using config source for schema installation
Using ${prefix}/etc/gconf/schemas/ as install directory for schema files

configure: error:

Could someone please point me in the next direction?

Thanks in advance,
Arafat Mohamed

I would try opening up the configure script with an editor to try and see where it is looking for mozilla. Search for mozilla in the file. About 6 months ago I tried to complile Galeon from source also, but I didn't have gnome, etc, so I built all that from source too. I had to hack it up pretty good and then it still didn't end up working out. If you have gnome, etc working properly you should be able to do it though.
