gnome_enable is a 'default' option that enables some services that make
GNOME desktop experience a bit more useful & pleasurable.  You can see
which services default to "YES" by running:

    keramida at kobe:/home/keramida$ cd /usr/local/etc/rc.d
    keramida at kobe:/usr/local/etc/rc.d$ fgrep -l gnome_enable *
    keramida at kobe:/usr/local/etc/rc.d$
