A quick glance suggests that this gives you a couple of major things
such as make, patch, and gcc, but not much else.  What I really hoped
for was a single target to give me at a minimum -dev and -doc packages
for everything in the base installation -- something more the
equivalent of a full install on other distributions.

True enough.  I tried an amd64 port of Slackware on the same machine
and X couldn't even start.  Ubuntu might be slimmer than I'd like, but
it did mostly work.
