I guess that means that by default Ubuntu, like ourselves, build with
the --enable-gio backend rather than the gnomevfs2 one. So that's
another alternative, add --enable-gio to the autoconf invocation and
avoid pulling down gnomevfs2.

At some stage we'll surely flip over to --enable-gio as the default
instead of --enable-gnomevfs2, but I'm not too sure what we're
considering as base-line Linux at the moment.
