In the light of day, I think I have three choices:
1. Drop non-prism and go on with installation of Gnome or KDE
2. Try building from source those parts of Gnome (gdm) or KDE that include
bits that non-prism objects to
3. Try another desktop environment

I might go the easy route and drop non-prism :)  but we'll see!

Take care,
