 Wrong list.  In future, ask on blfs-support.

 To answer anyway, I think you've misunderstood what you read in the
BLFS book.  Gnome these days is usually in /usr.  Read it again, and if
it's still not clear please indicate the part you don't understand on
blfs-support (and, perhaps, which version of the BLFS book).
