It's not easy, try to go for the stuff that is most important to you... gcc,
g++, X, Xserver.. and let the dependencies take care of themselves... It's most
beneficial to do it that way on a small system (drive). Add packages as you
find that you need them. Use 'apt-get' if your laptop has network access...
dependencies are taken care of much easier.
