my guess was right "SDL sources" do *not* exist on internet . i tried
"httpup" too & gnome installation failed at the same point. i decided
to download "SDL sources" myself on Firefox. what i found is
""" does not exist, it was the first hint on Google for "sdl
download". i am not able to get SDL sources & hence can not build

do you know any pointer to SDL sources so thati can run GNOME?
