Command explanations

--sysconfdir=/etc/gnome: This switch puts configuration files in /etc/gnome instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/etc.

--libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin: This switch puts libexec files in $GNOME_PREFIX/sbin instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/libexec.

rmdir `pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/doc: Use this command if $GNOME_PREFIX is anything other than /usr as the directory is unneeded and unpopulated.
