Gnome again, but more extreme this time

I have tried building GNOME 2.12. on my quite a recent LFS system for
awhile without success. My problems are:
- When starting gnome as root, gnome-panel crashes
- When starting as a normal user, menus from the panel do not open,
perhaps someone thinks that they are empty
- Actually not gnome-related: xscreensaver 4.2 segfaults when ever it
activates and takes down xorg 6.8.2 with it.
When I built with --enable-debug, the system worked better, but I got lots of
messages about assertion failures, mostly NULL was passed as a parameter,
where it should not be. This time I compiled 2.12.3 with --disable-debug.
I have set all environment variables as they should be (before starting to
compile anything). The only problem during compilation was that convert-test
from glib 2.8.6 failed, because it could not iconv to ISO8859-15. So my
question is, is there something terribly wrong with my system. I built
LFS with GCC 4.0.2, glibc 2.3.5 and HJL binutils 220.127.116.11.3. Now I have
upgraded to GCC 4.1.0, glibc 2.3.6 and HJL binutlis 18.104.22.168.7. I have not
experienced problems with my system except those listed above. I'll be very
glad if someone has something else to say than "start from scratch."
Thanks in advance!
