Fink-users at might be a good place to ask.  
There's also fink-gnome-core, but the people likely to respond are  
reading -users anyway. If it's really all upstream, they'll tell you.  
But I'm guessing they haven't had a whole lot of people testing Intel  
Macs with all the gnome components. They might recognize a pattern  
that they've already patched somewhere else in gnome on fink.
