I say loosely because it's really just the initial build environment that is bootstrapped, and my scripts for doing that don't quite match any of the above. The focus is to provide a solid, minimal system for use as an application server. There's no deadlines with it, so I take my time. I was surprised at how useful rpm actually is at solidifying the final build, and at forcing you to think about where all the files are going. Anyway, that's how I came across this particular issue.

Old, a bit stale, but I began such a hint.  (Only chapter 5 so far)  Unfortunately I took a step
backwards to make it work by going to the previous build system.

I recall someone mentioning that sysroot would be a better solution...
