[PlanetCCRMA] sced missing from Gedit plugins

After a couple of days away I have implemented suggestions from Fernando and
Jeff Sandys (thanks to both of you) and am backon the hunt trying to get
supercollider working with gedit version 3.2.6-1.fc16 in F16.

The short story:
After upgrading to SC version 3.5 from the ccrma testing repository, however, I
have run into new compilation issues, and have lost SC functionality with emacs
as well.  I don't think I am missing any packages, and don't see any obsoleted
packages, but I obviously do not have SC configured correctly.
Jeff : If you could send your working SC configuration in a reply or to me
offlist I would be grateful.

The verbose version:
After downloading and installing  planetccrma-repo-testing-1-1.3.fc16.ccrma.noarch.rpm
the update revealed:

and this summary from yum:
  supercollider.i686 0:3.5.2-1.fc16.ccrma
  supercollider-sc3-plugins.i686 0:3.5-0.2.git20120508.fc16.ccrma
Dependency Installed:

  supercollider-libscsynth.i686 0:3.4.5-1.fc16.ccrma
  supercollider-sclang.i686 0:3.4.5-1.fc16.
I  seem to have all of the available supercollider packages except
supercollider-extras.i686, supercollider-libscsynth.i686 and supercollider-sclang.i686
(all version 3.4.5-1), but an attempted install of these 3 reveals that they
are obsoleted in supercollider-3.5.2-1.
I moved the contents of deprecated directory ~/share/SuperCollider
to ~/.local/share/SuperCollider.

My current situation is that the supercollider plugin appears in gedit's
preferences->plugins, but when invoking SuperCollider Mode in gedit compilation
fails with a list of parse and class error messages in
(e.g. "Cannot find superclass 'Solver' for class 'Euler' in file
/usr/share/SuperCollider/Extensions/MathLib/classes/Solver/Solver.sc" and
"Class extension for nonexistent class 'Start Row' in file

I also can no longer run SC with emacs -sclang, which returns 2 similar errors:
ERROR: file '/usr/share/SuperCollider/Extensions/MathLib/classes/LazyLindenmayer/extStringRewrite.sc' parse failed
error parsing
ERROR: Class extension for nonexistent class 'StartRow'
     In file:'/usr/share/SuperCollider/Extensions/dewdrop_lib/ddwGUIEnhancements3.4/recursiveResize.sc'

I see that my supercollider-mathlib and supercollider-dewdrop package versions
do not match the main supercollider version exactly, but they appear to be
the most current versions.
Any ideas anyone?

I have fedora 16 x86_64 on my laptop, sced didn't work at first,
but it does now.  I'm not sure what I did to fix it, but last week I
tried it, thinking that I might be able to get time off from work
to attend the Supercollider class at CCRMA (sadly, not).

I have Supercollider 3.5.2 and gedit 3.2.6
The supercollider.plugin and supercollider.py are in the
usr/lib64/gedit/plugins folder, and PackageKit-gtk3-module is
installed.  I see that there is both a gedit and gedit-2 folder,
maybe this is the issue.

If you have any questions about my configuration that might
help you solve the problem ask me directly or on the list.
Even though I have used emacs for a long time, supercollider
with gedit is my preference.
