Grab the gtk2-0705.dsl, and place it in a work directory of your choice ..
Open a root shell, and 'cd' to the chosen directory containing the extension ..
Then , make a list of the contents ..
tar -ztf gtk2-0705.dsl > list
Scan thru the list, and get a little familiar with it's contents..
You'll see Perl 5.8.7 , gtk2 , pango, defoma, and a boocoo of libs,
and other files that I've found common to a large number of the gtk2 apps.
You can use this list to compare to whatever you build,
and factor out any matches..
Go ahead and use apt to get the XFCE for you,
but use the -d switch in your apt-get install command to make the
debs download, uninstalled, in your /var/cache/apt/archives directory.
Go there, as root, and work from there, or copy them to another
location/partition where you have ample room to expand them .
You can then use the ' dpkg-deb -x whatever.deb . ' command to
open only the ones you find that aren't already in the gtk2-0705.dsl package.
No need to open the libc6, perl, pango, defoma, gtk2, or other debs.
You could start with only the xfce debs, and retar the output into a
package you can loadtest.. Add only what you need until it runs..
That should get you started, anyway..
Hope that helps..
