Definitely just install 2.8 without building any 2.6. Only thing is
you said you started with a BLFS-5.1 base. If you've installed many
of the GTK packages (glib, gtk+, pango, atk, etc) from the BLFS-5.1
versions, you may* have trouble with GNOME-2.8. You should seriously
consider using the unstable branch of BLFS for all your GNOME related

* - I don't really know, but I do know GNOME development moves quickly
and they may require recent GTK packages.
