If you want to learn your system and also compile gnome from source, I strongly
recommend you try  You can compile your linux system 
from source (and learn chroot), and it has a passable guide to compiling gnome
and many other things from scratch.  I followed their detailed instructions, 
and in about two weeks of intermittent effort had a working gnome system, and 
I actually had a fair idea how everything hung together.
