    As with me. I haven't used a 'distribution' after I installed Slackware
    when it _first_ came out.

    Since them I've built my own systems. Completely. From source.

    # I installed glibc and now I have nothing. No sources except the kernel
    # will compile.

    Well, I've been more lucky. I have an entire system (still) full of source
    code that compiles under glibc. I know it does, cuz I've done it all

    # It will probably be years before there are any Linux distributions that
    # will compile the sources for the binaries provided by these distributions.

    I've really not that _that_ awful of a time. Really. You all know,
    probably, who I am at this point and about where my skill-sets lie, and if
    _i've_ managed to compile:
