Hi Greg,

Could you tell us the error message you're seeing?  I don't see any error
messages in the work log you posted.  (But maybe someone else could make sense
of it anyway, if they've duplicated this.)  What's the last output you see
in your shell when the build breaks?

I've successfully built the Gnome meta package under 2.1RC3/i386 about two
weeks ago, I think I recall having to tinker with it to get some of the
packages to compile, the error message might jog my memory.
