Minimal Slackware XFCE Desktop Build

Hi Everyone,

I am not trying to reinvent the wheel, but I am trying to get help for building a minimal Slackware (13.37 as of now) XFCE Desktop build. My goal is to build a lean desktop just like the (fantastic) Salix OS XFCE build.

Can anyone please suggest what are the minimum required packages I need to choose from the Slackware DVD? I tried noting the names of each package from Salix OS XFCE ISO, but it's too cumbersome and it has some packages which are different from Slackware.
