The X is actually a very easy profile... As for gnome, I currently have a 
basic one, that i am not happy with ;) - but it works...  J Jones and I just 
released a new Gnome hint that covers everything from just finished LFS and 
got X installed all the way up to GnuCash (the largest gnome app currently 
available 59 linked libs)... Now the alfs-profiles for most of these packages 
are just about finished, i'll polish them up this weekend, and they can be 
checked out from my anon cvs, i'll post all that later this weekend...

Just a quick note on building X... Some of us on #LFS have been hacking up a 
host.def that will do all the things that the current X hint does, along with 
a few groovey new features that we found while digging in all the .cf's of 
the X src tree...  so the whole process is just - untar the packages, copy 
the host.def, make World and go to dinner...  It's available from the 

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at login

<return> for passwd

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at co stuff/host.def

It's still quite a dynamic piece of work, so if you use it please let us know 
how it went, or any features that you think would be nice...
