I have an "enhanced" XFCE desktop with a set of about 25 GNOME libs 
(among many other things), enough to run the handful of GNOME apps I 
want (grip, evince, gnomebaker, ...). Bit like what Freerock GNOME did, 
but for XFCE.

You can download the whole build tree via svn:

svn co svn://svn.tuxfamily.org/svnroot/slackware/slick/12.0/newdesktop

Short explanation: the master script 'build.sh' builds everything. It 
reads the content of slackware/packages for the build order, builds 
everything in the source/ directory and then puts every resulting 
package in slackware/. If you want to build just the GNOME libs, edit 
the 'packages' file and uncomment every package you don't want to build. 
Then, simply run:

# sh build.sh

GNOME minimal libs take about 30 to 40 minutes to build on a recent PC.



PS1: the script is mildly intrusive, since it updates hicolor-icon-theme 
and gnome-icon-theme.

PS2: you'll need the most recent version of poppler. I deleted it from 
my build tree, since you'll find it in the official patches/ directory.
