I didn't try this myself (due to a lack of access to any 2.4 kernel ;)
but IIRC some folks reported successful builds of GARNOME on old
systems, like RH 9 (maybe even 8).

Basically you should start by commenting out hal and dbus LIBDEPS, so
that it won't be built automatically as a dependency. If any app just
won't build without it (like desktop/gnome-volume-manager IIRC) get rid
of those garballs. [1] A command like this [2] being run in your GARNOME
root tree will report hal LIBDEPS:

$ grep -H ^LIBDEPS */*/Makefile | grep hal


[1] Moving the gnome-volume-manager or simply renaming with a leading
    dot will do.
[2] This time no creative usage of 'find'. ;)

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
