Question Running Gnome apps in KDE

I have found that when I have a Slackware question I always get a great answer here. Being kind of a n00b to Slackware I have a question. I have been running Mandrake for about a 18 months. I made the switch to Slackware back about a month ago. I really love the leanness of the Distro. That's my problem though. I want to run some Gnome apps like Grip, Evolution, Gftp and some others. I don't want to install a full Gnome desktop. I tried Dropline but it wanted to take over my desktop. So the question is: What do I have to install from Gnome to get things like Evolution and Grip to compile and install?? I realize that this is allot to ask but I figure that somebody in here has conquored it. I just don't want to over bloat my pristine install. I run Kde and Fluxbox so I really don't want to have Gnome also. Thanks in advance.

I haven't tried...probalby everything from gnome which begins with lib*
but why load 2 widget librarys ?
arson is a perfect replacement for grip,
konqueror is also a very good ftp-client..
evolution...unfortunately doesn't have a campareable equivalent in kde, but if you only use it @ home, kmail is fine
