I manage to build Gnome from CVS after staying up to 5 AM yesterday, thanks
(however there were a few real bugs on the way, like gnome-applets not
building due to some glib unresolved symbols, gtkhtml not generating a
"libtool" file, gnome-panel's libecal dependency on
evolution-data-server/libsoup was not addressed by jhbuild etc...)

I hope a solution will be found to fix these issues (including the jhbuild
issues)  to be able to build Gnome, so we beta testers can have an easier
ride with it, because I ain't going back to 1.4.x versions, in fact
Slackware just updated today from 1.7 to 1.8.x.
