Hello Wayne,

The errors I get with gdm are:

Failed to give slave programs access to the display.  Trying to proceed
GdmManager: Couldn't lookup username gnome-initial-setup 
GDmDisplay: display lasted 1.38 seconds
gdm.service main process exited code=dumped status=11/SEGV

The jhbuild wiki said to do the following:

$ rm -rf /opt/gnome/var/run/dbus
$ ln -s /var/run/dbus /opt/gnome/var/run/dbus
$ rm -rf /opt/gnome/var/lib/dbus/machine-id
$ ln -s /var/lib/dbus/machine-id /opt/gnome/var/lib/dbus/machine-id

As for libexec jhbuild installs it to /opt/gnome/libexec.
