I don't have librsvg natively on MacOSX, and I already have gio, so I
don't understand why it isn't being recognised instead of requiring
libgsf, unless it is a compiler linking problem ??

I could install librsvg via MacPorts (not a problem as such). However,
that does tend to negate Christian's motto of keeping ports installation
involvement out of, or to a minimum, for MacOS LibO development.
