Sorry I forgot to specify that I will be adding new drives to the system, so
cvsup'ing isn't really a viable option in my case. 
Also, maybe you can clear something up for me.
Every time I have cvsup'ed my source tree, and reinstalled world. I end up
with every single binary file the base system has to offer.
Is there any automated way I can limit the source that is compiled to the
source I have on my existing system? (For future reference.)
