    I've had no problems at all compiling Gnome from sources, and I've done it about 6 times now. Works just fine if you compile things in the order specified on the web site. Go out of order a little bit (which the BLFS book does slightly) and you start running into trouble...

    Give garnome a try, its a script to build gnome from the latest sources, its a little tougher than something like apt-get or emerge, but less of a pain then a plain source build
