For most purposes, you only want to built the tools that are outside of main trunk.
The ggnfs project was great at the time it was published but now is an abandonware.
For historic reasons, the project is kept as is.

The two tools that were passengers on the project are: contrib/remdups/ and src/experimental/lasieve4_64/
as well as the glue script tests/factMsieve.pl
These are the parts that you would mostly use. (You additionally get miseve from another project.)

On top of that, there were refactoring efforts: there is a factmsieve.py script that is more modern, and there is yafu, which has msieve and all scripting hidden inside.
