gnome on mac os x tiger

forgive me if this subject has been discussed in previous threads ...

i would like to install the latest gnome on mac os x tiger, but i'm not sure which package to install using fink. previous threads have mentioned gnome and bundle-gnome, but i have filtered for gnome and i can't find the packages i just mentioned in fink. before i go installing every gnome package, i'd like to briefly mention what i'm trying to accomplish.

for documentation at work, we usually take screenshots using fedora core linux 1 with gnome on an x86. the software we write works on mac os x tiger however, and i'd like to be able to take my screenshots at home using my mac -- we still want it to have the gnome window dressing however. all i really need is the bare bones for gnome, which includes the window dressing that will match that of gnome which ships with fedora core linux 1. the problem is, i don't know which fink package to install ...

anyone have suggestions?

My guess would be gnome-desktop.
