Ofcause I can.

Ahh, you mean to have buildroot install to a different location if the
host gnome stuff isn't in /usr? That seems like a can of worms to me -
Buildroot is hard enough to test as it is without adding more
varability to it.

I definately wouldn't want to do it in buildroot. What we could do is
to extend dependencies.sh to complain to the user to fix it up
themselves if needed.

I think they only support distributions with gnome in /usr.
