This metaport installs the pieces of the GNOME 3 desktop that
are needed to provide a functional desktop. The x11/gnome3
meta port, contains the full version of the GNOME 3 desktop environment.
The GNOME 3 desktop Lite edition has been successfully installed.
The Lite edition only includes the minimal components to get a working GNOME 3
Desktop. The user then has to install prefered applications like editor,
web browser or e-mail client. If you wish to install the full desktop, you can
remove this port, and install the x11/gnome3 port or package.  That can be best
accomplished using the following commands:
# pkg_delete gnome3-lite
# cd /usr/ports/x11/gnome3
# make install clean
Alternatively, you can install additional GNOME components individually
using either their ports or packages.
