Thats almost what I do - however, I use Debian to bootstrap it. Get a
minimal system going, then manually install stuff like a custom compiled
kernel, sendmail, mimedefang, apache, mysql, etc. but keep using Debian
for the back-end stuff to keep things like ssh patched, etc.

It stems from admining various different system (Solaris, SunOs, H-PUX,
etc) where I wanted the config files in a common place rather than where
the vendor wanted to put them... These days I'm almost entirely Debian
based, but still have the odd Solaris and RH box to look after...
