    7970  <para>These instructions are simplistic to facilitate removal of

     82  <para>As was previously mentioned, building a GNOME desktop from sources is
     83  a significant project. Some may find it too tedious or time-consuming to
     84  perform a full installation following the BLFS book. You may wish to review
     85  the automated methods mentioned in the
     86  GNOME-&gnome-version;&gnome-minor-version; <ulink
     87  url="http://www.gnome.org/start/2.14/notes/en/rninstallation.html">Release
     88  Notes</ulink>. Note that using any other method to install
     89  GNOME-&gnome-version;&gnome-minor-version; other than using the BLFS
     90  instructions cannot be supported by the BLFS team. Alternate methods are only
     91  mentioned as a courtesy to builders who would like to build GNOME from
     92  sources but do not have the time/desire/patience/whatever to follow the
     93  BLFS book.</para>
