jhbuild will allow you to build only gnome-bluetooth and associated,
however, it will be problematic if you want to test some parts that
intergrate in the desktop, like the nautilus extension for example.
You're better off building the whole desktop (try GNOME 2.10, instead of
GNOME 2.12 if you're just getting started).
