Ah, ok, I thought perhaps it was a package in the Fedora repo. Shame.

I did post a very simple recipe for doing exactly this (vnc sessions
started with xinetd) on this list a few weeks ago actually - it really
does seem the simplest solution to me. (Subject of the message was
"VNC and a full login Gnome session with GDM "). Would be nice if this
was actully working out-of-the-box in a standard install, IMO.
