hildon-libs is a core Maemo OS library.

If this is AisleRiot from gnome-games, then not giving access to the
source would be a licence violation.  Luckily, the source is available
in http://repository.maemo.org/extras/pool/bora/free/source/g/gnome-games/

Aside: how do you look for a source?  Well, the .install file says

  repo_name = bora-extras
  repo_deb_3  = deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras bora free non-free
  package   = aisleriot

so go to http://repository.maemo.org/extras/dists/bora/free/source/,
read the Sources file, and find

  Package: gnome-games
  Binary: aisleriot-help-en, aisleriot, aisleriot-help-fr
  Version: 1:2.19.2+git-1maemo0
  Maintainer: Christian Persch <chpe at gnome.org>

I'll try building it for OS2008 later today.
