One thing to consider if you decide to go this route, is that you can
create a squashed file system file out of it, which is quite cool and
useful. I made one for Puppy 4 containing a minimal KDE 3.5 and
Bibletime for my Puppy install. If you are compiling from source, it
can be complicated to set it up (I only did it once, and it was quite
a bear), but the results are worth it, especially since on Puppy, it
is much easier to share with others this way. Definitely something to
consider if you do decide to use Puppy to do this.
