On my hp300 I have these installed:

orre% pkg_info | egrep gnome
gnome-libs-1.0.53   Libaries for the GNU Network Object Model Environment
gnome-print-0.9     A prototype implementation of the Gnome Printing Architecture
gnome-core-1.0.53   Base component of GNU Network Object Management Environment
gnome-chess-0.2.4   GNOME's graphical interface for playing chess.
orre% pkg_info | egrep libgtop
libgtop-1.0.5       library to retrieve system information, used in GNOME.
orre% uname -a
NetBSD 1.4.2 NetBSD 1.4.2 (ORRE) #2: Sat Mar  4 00:30:01 MET 2000 hp300

I remember seeing some error similar to the one you quoted about
'struct pcb' etc.  Let's see...  Do you have patch-al in your tree?
It tries to work around the i386-centricism of this code.  It may
be that there's a newer libgtop (yep, 1.0.6) -- I've not tried to
build that one yet.
