Thanks - this is interesting. However, this is still somewhat of a brute force method for piecing things together - I thought there was some kind of elegant mechanism where you could edit make.conf or something, so that when you did a make world, it would skip the components that you didn't want to - and you could control it with much more granularity than you can in the custom menu in sysinstall ... does this sound familiar at all ?
That is, forget that I am doing solid state / flash at all - what is the correct way to install FreeBSD without things like ppp, isdn, and other pieces of the _base_ system that you don't want ?
