IMHO, we should not install these files. Any modern gtksourceview-sharp
package will have them (post GNOME 2.6 maybe, though I think nld has a
patch). Or maybe we should not make this issue cause the build to fail.

Luckily, the newer gtksourceview packages are going to use XDG_DATA_DIRS
or something similar so that we don't have to deal with this issue.
Sadly though, that is for the GNOME 2.12 timeframe.
