Best way to build GNOME 2.9.x

I'm starting to get more and more interested in testing and playing with some of the bleeding edge things that some in the GNOME world (tigert, jimmac, garret, nat and so on) are throwing into the unstable branch.

I'm looking for the best (only?) build method for something as complex as GNOME CVS, and to keep it independant of my current GNOME 2.8 install. Another issue is that I only have broadband access at work and will have to bring the files home - can this even be done?

What do the experts here recommend as:
1. the best way of building GNOME 2.9.x (2.9.1 as of right now)?
2. the best way of getting everything together from 1 location to home?

Just a random question also: how much difficulty am I looking at throwing GNOME 2.9.1/CVS, Mono 1.1.2/CVS and Evolution 2.1.0/CVS together?
