Building binaries from sources


Hi there!
I have another simple question... I have a small custom distribution that doesn't come with gcc and other several packages installed (such as apache2 or php5 etc..) aptitude or other packet manager is missing so i'm a little bit stuck..
I want to install some packages in my custom distribution.. what is the easiest way?
I'd like first to get gcc working and i'd like to build it with another distro (same architecture, i.e. same pc with all dependencies satisfied) and then put the binaries to my custom distro.

Is that possible?

If I remember correctly, the way LFS gets around the problem is booting from another distribution (in your case, a Live CD would be most appropriate), then chrooting into the root of the target distribution and then compiling gcc. http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...roduction.html
