Oh, these packages are only minor components of GNOME, which are 
included because they are used by the other packages in Compact. For 
example, gnome-settings is used to manage GTK2 themes, even if it is not 
run from within GNOME.

The core GNOME2 libraries and applications are missing there.

Well, can you select 'Preferences -> Repositories' in your Synaptic 
menu? And choose the appropriate repositories from there?
