Thank you, it did!

Then vte said it needed python, which yapo confirmed was not installed. 
Now I have both /usr/lib/python and /usr/lib/python2.4 for some 
unfathomable reason.And vte complained at the end of the build about 
missing python footprint:

=======> ERROR: Footprint mismatch found:

I was able to install vte with pkgmk -i, but I am still confused about 
the missing python footprint and ending up with two identical python 
directories in /usr/lib. Currently running the gnome install script from again.
