One of the goals of jhbuild is to spare you to setup your build
environment manually, and as a bonus it knows where to obtain
dozens of packages from. Once setup properly, you can build more or less
all of Gnome in the same way without even knowing why it works.

An alternative way is of course to install the packages of your choice
to a custom prefix and adjust the environment, ie. PKG_CONFIG_PATH,
LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and PATH. In fact, if you're experienced with linux,
or your respective favourite operating system, that's not even hard.
