Yes make your own custom image recipe

quick example below
(may want to switch to minimal image as the depends)

put it in

check what packages / base tasks you need via the package browser

If you are using other similar boards (beagle , panda etc)
you may want to use the angstrom/oe version rather than gumstix version
as they can build for multiple boards from the one toolchain and
Koens latest setup script is a bit easier than setting up gumstix tools.
see http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/simplified-development-setup
and their online builder is good if you need a new image to test with in a hurry
