It is a little more involved. Cool

This is the last time Gnome worked with Puppy that I am aware of

Compiling 'gnome' means compiling and installing over 150 libraries and programs in a certain order. If you really want gnome, you should be using another distro.

Usually, the simplest real gnome app is gonna have a minimum set of depends of around 150 packages! So, good luck with that.

but that's just for the compiling environment, right????

the executable will only contain the bits of code it actually uses, not the entire dependency package.

right?

No, 'runtime' means just what it says. For every package which has libraries there will be a separate corresponding devel package. Just look here for a teaser:
https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/gnome
Remember that each of those required dependencies is gonna have many depends itself. The whole stack starts with freetype fontconfig and glib. If you install a full gnome with devel packages you are talking about 4oo packages.
