Make sure all build dependencies are satisfied.

what version of debian are you trying to build this on?

You say you are trying to build python-gnomecanvas and yet the messages you paste say you are trying to build gnome-python, can you clarify?

Are you using official debian source? Have you modified the source tree in any way?

Why are you building from source rather than using the supplied binaries?

Thanks for the reply. I have corrected the error by installing one dependency.
