GNOME 2.4 install

I saw that GNOME 2.4 was just released, and I was anxious to upgrade from my current 2.2 version, since a lot of the bug fixes affect me directly.

I saw that the only way to d/l the new version was from source, in either bz2 or gz format - no rpms, which would be much easier for me, using RH9. I kinda expected it to be a single file, but it's not - it's 76 (!) separate modules.

My question - do I really have to tar -zxvf, ./configure, make, and make install for all 76 files, or is there an easier way?

The way to do it is with Garnome...however (see my post from today) I'm having problems getting it to work (it almost finishes and then errors out).
