Ports Collection

I really liked the FreeBSD running on my ASUS desktop,
until I tried to install gnome2 and I was surprised that
it never finished it, during which it created some 20 and
more user groups like 'nobody', 'anonymous', 'aiviah', 'games', etc ...
and I am wondering if that was a normal process.

# cd /usr/ports/x11/gnome2
# make install clean

I have burned the DVD of 6.4 version lately and I don't
know if that's all I needed to install gnome2 instead of
using Ports Collection.
