No, I don't "need" Gnome and am looking into alternatives per your suggestion. I hate the idea of having to run a display manager at all, but the picture looks too good to back out now. ;) 

On the other note, I've been trying with a current HG of xine-lib:
changeset:   10295:c22d7a4b5854
tag:         tip

summary:     Merge from 1.1.

and applied the patch  "xine-lib-1.2hg-coreavc.diff" with fuzz, 
then ./autogen.sh --disable-dxr3; make
only to end up with :

make[6]: *** [i386/dsputil_mmx.o] Error 1
make[6]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/xine-lib-1.2/contrib/ffmpeg/libavcodec'
make[5]: *** [ffmpeg/libavcodec/libavcodec.a] Error 2

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
So I've been trying to work my way around that to no avail. Your thoughts there would be MORE than welcome!
