For the most part, you are OK as long as you maintain the virtual file 
systems that are mounted in Chapter 6.  I usually build over ssh so I 
make sure that openssl and openssh are in place.  Other things I build 
early are lsb-release (for my scripts), sudo, which, and wget.

I also have my sources in /usr/src and that is a separate partition so I 
can use it from any build.  I recommend the following as separate 
partitions: /boot, /home, and /usr/src.  /opt is also a possibility.
