What I was figuring was that prolific contributors could have their own
packages (like Nicu's), but for the one-offs we could put them in more
general topic-oriented packages (like the flags). When the contributor
has enough stuff and feels up to it, they could break their package out
into topic-oriented packages (like John Cliff's signs).
For stuff that doesn't fit into any of these categories, I set up an
'open_collection' package, where one-off's (like my apple or your hacker
symbol) can be stored until there's enough similar items to warrant
creating a topic package, or until you've done enough stuff to want to
manage your own package.

It actually does not require the Gnome desktop, although it does use
several of the Gnome libraries like Pango, Gtk+, libart, gtkmm, etc. but
these are relatively low level. We have to be careful to keep it
portable to Win32 and OSX.
Someone ported version 0.36 to Sparc/Debian. I don't know if anyone's
compiled it on Solaris - if so, they've not reported it. If you do give
it a shot, you can report problems (or successes) on this wiki page:
There are some other SVG editors. I don't know if they work on Solaris
but here's a list of options you could try:
