bento already builds GNOME using pluto[12] as part of the main package
cycle.  One problem is that the two pluto machines are pretty slow and
continue to have stability problems, so finishing a build can take a
long time and typically requires a lot of restarts to recover from the
build machine failures.

Adding to the workload by trying to do parallel builds of GNOME at the
same time doesn't sound like a good solution to me though.
