Welcome back and thanks for running the tests again. Did you use pkg-get
to install those packages? I was wondering whether we could create a
very small install ISO containing just the base packages plus stuff you
need to get your network up, and a way to directly fetch binary packages
using pkg-get. I'd assume that this would be interesting for both those
that want a minimal setup and those that want to setup a KDE/GNOME
desktop without compiling everything or download CRUX Evolution which
contains one DE too much for most people ;-). Just an idea though,
didn't put a lot of thought into it. 
To think a bit ahead, it would be cool to select some packages on one
machine and have a script download those binary package and build a
customized install ISO from it, using the binary packages. Imagine: "Oh,
I want base, X11, firefox, KDE and OpenOffice. Go!", and the next thing
you remember is the CD tray opening and a shiny custom installation CD
smiling at you. 

Oh well, I don't really think there's a real need for this, I was just
carried away by the possibilites ;-)
