    I feel your pain about the installation order. :-)

    I assume you're trying to get an installation which is better tuned to
    your system than you'd get from a binary distro.

    What would happen if you first installed the binary distro to provide all
    the dependancies, then proceeded to reinstall from source and overwrite
    the existing binaries? (I'm just guessing this might work - please don't
    beat on me too hard if it's a dumb idea.)

    Default Gnome installation from source?

    I didn't get any response to my last question, so I am generalizing a bit
    now.

    Is it practicable to install Gnome from source?

    It is a bunch of interrelated tarballs. Figuring out the dependencies in
    order to get the right installation sequence and stepping through it
    with './configure', 'make', 'make check', 'make install', 'make clean',
    'make distclean' is a matter of days. The Gnome site contains no hint about
    the matter.

    Any hint?

    .... if you wanna do all this building stuff, why not use a distro
    that is designed as such from the front to the back: gentoo.org

    GARNOME is a script (or a set of scripts) that help building and
    installing the latest bleeding-edge GNOME from sources. I don't know if
    you can use it to build the stable version though.
