Until recently, I've been busy writing a series of SlackBuild scripts 
for a "complete" XFCE desktop with a handful of GNOME apps. Then, maybe 
two weeks ago and after much time of experimenting, I decided it was 
much less hassle to strip down KDE (see http://kdemod.ath.cx) than to 
beef up XFCE. But of course, I still have what I did so far.

Take a look at http://kikinovak.free.fr/slackware/12.0.

There's a tarball gnome-minimal.tar.bz2, and I also put the 
(uncompressed) content of the tarball online, for your convenience, so 
you can browse through it. (My upload speed is not very high, and as I 
am writing this message, it's only at 13%, you may have to wait a bit...)

I've included the sources, since retrieving coherent sources for GNOME 
can be a bit of an adventure (and you'll understand why Patrick 
Volkerding left GNOME out, by the way :oD).

You don't have to spend a whole weekend trying to build the minimal 
GNOME libs, I've already done the work for you. There's a master build 
script build.sh: this script reads the contents of the plain text file 
slackware/packages, builds one package after another, puts them all in 
the slackware/ directory and installs them. Of course, you're free to 
alter that to suit your convenience.

I've already posted a message about a minimal set of GNOME libs to this 
list, but didn't get much response. You'll understand that one of the 
main reasons to switch to KDE is the "unmaintainability" of GNOME.

Anyway: enjoy!
