Sorry, just my opinion on that matter.
If you've ever built GNOME before, you'd know that its 200+ packages rely completely upon the existing functionality of the rest of the system libraries and programs... KDE is the complete opposite, where most everything is contained within itself. Perhaps you could explain which components are "bloated" in Dropline GNOME?

I'm assuming they're kernel messages and I have a module enabled in the kernel to make them appear but I can't figure out how to stop them
The /bin/login is PAM-aware. There shouldn't normally be any ooutput to the console, but it could be something specific to your installation. These messages normally are sent to /var/log/messages.
