The situation does make a person want to replace the entire mess.

@GM: Have you had a chance to check into Mer?
http://merproject.org/
http://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Main_Page

They are making arm v6l code releases:
http://releases.merproject.org/relea...mv6l/packages/
Those releases run on the Raspberry Pi:

And others:
http://releases.merproject.org/releases/latest/builds/

They are making the entire project available as a "build system".

I have not had time to do more than a quick read, not had time to try the builder.
Something I would want to do before even considering: "can it be ported to the Kindle display?" question.

I am taking a closer look at that project.
When they say: "large download" they mean it - about 7Gbyte to clone the repositories.

Edit: 5/10/2012
May well be an "all powerful" distribution builder but the learning curve is far too steep for this old man's mind.
