No icons in gdm?  I set XDG* in the bootscript with no change, but it 
shouldn't matter, as the default configuration pulls in /etc/profile 
anyway IIUC.  Also, shutdown and reboot icons do not work correctly for 
me.   There is that, and then two other remaining wrinkles to iron out 
on my installation.

First, gnome-keyboard still does not allow additional layouts, not even 
greyed out...but I'm using hal/policykit, maybe that has something to do 
with it.  I did not add gnome-policykit into the mix on this build.

Second, gnome-screensaver never returns the screen...or rather, it does, 
but the screen flashes with any user input (mouse or keyboard) and the 
panel and icons never come back.  xscreensaver works in the interim (and 
honestly is my choice anyway), but I also pulled in all of the 
xscreensaver hacks (which is the probable cause).  More as soon as I can 
get to it.

Only parts not built are Evince, and the accessibility packages.
