GNOME 2.20 is beginning to be released and will be completely  
released by the end of the month. Please have some patience. Note  
also that the GNOME port and the gnome-*-suite ports do not install  
anything, but simply rely on a number of other ports, so you should  
be able to pick through ports while we work on these issues to get a  
mostly working GNOME installation.
