To be honest it's much simpler to just use a source distro. I appreciate the
offer however and would probably be interested in looking at it. Building is
pretty simple and fast with a decent computer and a well designed build. Not
like those old days of hunting down the right libraries with a dialup and
compiling on a PS2/486-33. :o)
