Linux from scratch
 
Just out of interest who here has made their own Linux distro from scratch by compiling all the packages?

why would anyone do that?

or do you mean: Do a minimal installation of some distro and start compiling tarbals?

You only do stuff like this for schooling/teaching reasons and some probably did it. ( I used the lfs documentation in the past, but never finished my own system. )

There are projects like

or the manual Installation of gentoo:
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...x86.xml?part=1

which aim directly into these directions. Using it in production is a total different story.
