.in files are just plain ascii text files. but if you try to read them from the GUI file manager you might get stuck. instead use the command line.
for example Makefile.in is just a Makefile you can read with more, less , cat ...
suppose that you downloaded gnome-desktop-2.23.2.tar.bz2 in you home directory then you need to proceed as follows
tar jxvf gnome-desktop-2.23.2.tar.bz2 cd gnome-desktop-2.23.2 cd libgnome-desktop
gnome is divided into many projects so i dont know somewhere you just can go and download the entire source code(maybe the development segemnt).Linux and me it's a love story
