Hrm, this pavucontrol application seems a bit difficult to test (and I 
do want to test it before I release it...)

How do you others do it? First, if I try an out-of-tree build, it fails 
updating some README file. Second, if I don't, it does compile, but 
running from build directory fails with Gtk::Builder::add_from_file 
throwing a Glib::FileError. Any tricks I'm missing here?
