When you said give gnome the boot, I thought you meant all of gnome,
which removing libgnome will do.  'gnome-control-center' is a gnome2
app, and it sounds like you still have gnome1.4 on your system.  apt is
good for reconciling package dependencies and the like, but it seems
your system may be in an inconsistent state now.

Are you running woody, sarge or sid?  By the gcc-3.3 lines, it seems you
at least have the sid lines in sources.list.

Perhaps a better question is:  what do you mean exactly by 'give Gnome
the boot'?  All its apps?  Just the desktop?
