1.4e isn't a specific version. It just means "some cvs checkout after the
1.4d release"

This seems like a good time to mention that I ran into this problem building
gtk+ (or glib), I forget. It wanted -luuid, but -luuid is a static archive,
which libtool doesn't currently like. I had to hack libtool as Ralf mentions
