I now have working sword and bibletime RPMs.  But I am having
big problems with gnomesword.

I have tweaked the spec and configure files to enable me to get
it started.  But I am now getting the following error:

sword_main.cc: In member function `GList* BackEnd::fill_Bible_books(int)':
sword_main.cc:215: error: cannot convert `unsigned int*' to `gsize*' for 
argument `5' to `gchar* g_convert(const gchar*, gssize, const gchar*, 
const gchar*, gsize*, gsize*, GError**)'
make[3]: *** [sword_main.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/RPM/BUILD/gnomesword-2.1.1/src/backend'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/RPM/BUILD/gnomesword-2.1.1/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/RPM/BUILD/gnomesword-2.1.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.24855 (%build)

The only idea I have been able to come up with is that I may be
using a newer, stricter, version of GCC.  What is my best way
ahead here?
