   How about a package that contains the stuff you've written plus a tool that
   sucks in the required packages and builds everything?  Seems like this
   would be great to get on a bootable CD.

It's been done--this is essentially what the modified boot-floppies
plus mkisofs does.  

Note that you were responding to a rather old message; the finished
system is now at ftp://pfaffben.user.msu.edu/pppconn
