With a painfully slow network connection I'm slogging through a
work-around that in 2-3 more days may complete a GUI install. I simply
deselected the Development groups I think contain one or both of those
packages and let 'er rip. As I write this the progress bar is at 2148 of
5607 packages. After the initial installatin is comlete, I can go back
and install the Development groups I skipped, isolating the one or two
errant packages (if they haven't been fixed by then).
