Just copy your .xsession file for root into the home folder of the user
you want to use Gnome for or use gdm. Having said that there is a lot of
information regarding updating Gnome which you can find at It would be wise of you to check the
FAQ's at this site for important information.

The Gnome mailing list is freebsd-gnome at where all questions
regarding Gnome on FreeBSD should be posted.
