The GNOME Dev Kit should work for this - it's based on Foresight
Linux, which I also help out with.  The Dev Kit is maintained by 2
volunteers (Jesse & Ken VanDine - both idle in #gnome-love in IRC) and
the GNOME 2.26 bits are just being finalized in it now.  It uses the
Conary package management system, and it updateable, and is strictly
vanilla GNOME.

I think one of the big questions is how compositing works in a VM, but
I think it should work.  I know using the Dev Kit is a lot easier than
using jhbuild for newcomers.
