As far as I know, GNOME doesn't really have "eye candy" the same way
KDE does (there are no fading menus, bouncy transparent cursors,

I think you've misunderstood what the -lite versions are. From
This metaport installs the pieces of the GNOME 2 desktop that
are needed to provide a functional desktop. x11/gnome2
contains the full version of the GNOME 2 desktop environment.
In other words, it's the same GNOME, but installing the gnome2-lite
port doesn't install "extras", like games. GNOME is invoked the same
way regardless of which port is used.
I believe that the kde-lite port is the same.
