Fusa fails to build on new Gnomes

1) Need to get right -I flags from pkg-config (see for example
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=263367 ) the patch is in that
page, but I wander if CLFS could host it.

2) Applying that patch requires to run autotools to reconfigure, but
then we need the macros GNOME_COMPILE_WARNINGS (from gnome-common) and
AC_GCONF_SOURCE_2 (from gconf). 

3) On top of that there are a couple of problems on the Makefiles that
appear because of a bad relative path in the command for libtool.

In my case replacing 

LIBTOOL = $(SHELL) $(top_builddir)/libtool

by just 

LIBTOOL = $(which libtool) 

solved the issue, that's not the nicest way (and also assumes that
"which" is there) but I'm lazy/dumb enough to not change for something

Changing them in Makefile.in will be better I guess, but still I'm not
sure if this is the best solution.

I'll make these changes in the wiki, but if someone could confirm any of
these, or even solve the LIBTOOL issue in a nicer way, I'll appreciate
