I think you are exactly right.  I also don't really know autotools, so my 
goal here was to get in and out without too much fuss to get a working pan 
on my system.

I basically couldn't figure out a way to specify any gmime version above 
2.4 (specifically including 2.5/2.6).  That may be on purpose, or there 
may be a way; I don't know.  I suppose, in an ideal world,  Fedora would 
have provided a gmime24 compatibility package and this wouldn't be an 
issue, but alas, no such package exists today (maybe it should?).  If that 
is so, then maybe just best to ignore the gmime patches for now.
