This is how it was done in gnome 1.4 which is over 2 years old. For
gnome 2.0 we've split up the libraries into separate tarballs. It makes
maintaining the packages easier, you don't have to re-release the entire
set of libraries if there's a bugfix in one of the libraries.

So the way it's done now is pretty much like cairo and its dependencies
do it.
