Please refer to my previous posting (re-produced in Vol-216, message-9).

Sorry, I had goofed it. Package 'eel-2.2.4' is already included in BLFS-5.

All the same, those wishing to install GNOME, please be aware that Nautilus 
dependencies (as given in version 5.0 of BLFS) need to be modified. First: 
eel-2.2.4 has to be included as a dependency; second: librsvg-2.2.5 is also 
required by Nautilus. If the Book has been modified already, I am not aware 
of the same.

Sorry for the bother !
