A partial GNOME build (including on top: gnome-libs, gnome-core,
gnome-objc, gnome-guile, gnome-utils) takes about 2 hours on a AMD K6/200.
That means recompiling everything including the glib and installing it.

Perhaps one day, I'll switch to a non-RPMified development system, and
install gnome in /opt/devel or something like this.

That's what my little stupid rpmbuild script does. Just check it out, from
the CVS, and configure it, and add it to the crontab.
(It actually builds and installs RPMs, so it must run as root. :( )
