OK, my mistake, then. 

Let's say this is the minimal installation a user can do when
answering the default to all question (s)he's asked during an
installation, then....

No idea, indeed, of the method for having a complete default
system. Maybe by cancelling at the package installation method screen ?

This raises an old debate about gcc and all other development-related
packages being installed on "standard" installation, anyway..:-)
