Just an update on this, the buildroot is basically done. The two main
outstanding issues on this is glibc [1] and perl [2] and I would love
some help on both of those issues.

I don't think the glibc needs to hold up the running of
build-previous, I'm not sure about perl as I'm not sure if its like
python and is version dependent.

I'm also looking to get a alpha minimal install out there this week
for people to start playing with while we start to get the rest of the
core stuff built.
