I'm embarrassed, gnome-panel was not installed. I had checked with dpkg
-l |grep gnome and found a long list of gnome packages. I did not know
to look specifically for gnome-panel. Well, now it is installed and all
is well. Thanks,

Install the metapackage gnome-core, and all the important stuff gets
pulled in.

Metapackage gnome-desktop-environment pulls in even more stuff, and
gnome the complete system.
