X stuff

Looks pretty good.  I ran it with only minimal problems.
First I had to find and download xscreensaver, and modify the entity to look for the .gz archive instead of the bz2 archive.
Needed to install popt before gstreamer would build
Also, gstreamer and gst-plugins needed to know where gst-register was before it could execute.  My gnome-prefix was /opt/gnome/2.4.1 so I added 
&gnome-prefix;/bin/gst-register to the commands.

	Ok, they're located at this address:
	Some notes:
	First you'll have to download the GNOME sources seperately, from one of
	the various mirrors, download all the files in
	<mirror address>/GNOME/desktop/2.4/2.4.1/sources/
	You'll want to get the .tar.bz2 versions since that's what is in the
	profiles, plus they're smaller.
	Also for the profile to work properly you need to store all the tarballs
	into "<your folder for sources>/gnome/2.4.1"
	(ex. /home/tomp/src/gnome/2.4.1)
	There are a few packages that are needed that are not located in that
	directory, specifically:
	I believe that's all of them.
	I'd recommend using the versions I have in the ent/version/blfs-pt6.ent
	file located in the tarball.
	When you unpack the tarball, there will be a few directories under the
	gnome directory.
	In the ent directory there is a file blfs.ent, you'll want to open this
	and adjust several of the entities that are in that file. Then in the
	version directory below that you may want to change one entity that's in
	the blfs-pt6.ent, specifically the gnome-prefix entity, I have it set to
	/usr, which is where I put gnome on my system, if you want to put gnome
	in say /opt/gnome-2.4 or such I would suggest following the pre-install
	section for GNOME in BLFS CVS.
	I think that's everything you need to know to get things working, if not
	please feel free to e-mail me.
