ROX-Filer from git

I have ROX-Filer source which has a fix for the focus problem. It also has a workaround for the drag-and-drop failure in recent versions of SeaMonkey and Firefox.

Unfortunately, it won't compile in Wary. Anyone want to have a go? In Lupu maybe?

Get it from here:

To compile, you need 'shared-mime-info' package installed. If can get a .deb, fine, or compile shared-mime-info:

# ./configure --prefix=/usr
# make
# make install may need to use a throw-away save-file, as shared-mime-info may mess up your icons.

To compile ROX:

# ./ROX-Filer/AppRun doesn't install, you have to manually install.

After installation, you can remove the "export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true" entry in /etc/profile.

compile fixed
I have compiled it ok in Quirky: might be because I installed shared-mime-info 0.71 in Quirky, whereas I installed a very old version in Wary (0.18).
