It's what I do. But this is not user friendly (especially if you want to
understand what the instructions actually do) and it takes time. A lot of
time. At least a couple of days to get everything you need, assuming you
allready know what you need, and have a broadband internet connection.
Gentoo at leasts automates the build and install process.
To get an audio workstation going, I have installed around 160 additional
source packages, besides the ones needed to get the system bootable. So if
you go the real fundamental route and want to build _everything_ install a
source-package manager as the first thing after the basic setup.
Actually for real bleeding edge work, it is a good idea to install through
a source package manager.
