Yeah, that was a gnome-python-desktop bug. I just checked in a patch.

That's not necessary... gnome-python-desktop should use the right path 
for gnome-python if it's installed or not build modules that depends on 
gnome-python if it's not installed. Unfortunately this was broken.

I fixed this already in a pair of gnome-python-desktop modules... 
hopefully I catched all of them now. Though if people still get issues 
with gnome-python-desktop please let me know.

You must have an old sugar-jhbuild checkout? There should not be a dep 
on gnome-python anymore...

See in sugar.modules:

<include href="jhbuild/modulesets/gnome-2.16.modules"/>

We are getting modules from there too (and unless we have special needs 
that's the preferred way, less stuff for us to maintain).
