That is a very good strategy, of course, and necessary
My thought is to put all the stripped parts in a seperate package so as to be
able to spawn DL from DL
Using redhat as an example, all the components of GCC were so convoluted that
you had to do an entire install to find the components.
When MinGW was created (for Win32 of course, as an admin example) they had to
reassemble the whole GCC compilation scheme.
There just feels like there would be security benefits from building w/in the
sancitity of DL knowing nothing has been inserted along the way.
While I am not voluteering, I am running a Linux support forum and my general
direction is to promote DL type thinking in OS admin.
