Once compiled where are you going to install it? You could use a usb thumb drive but then you will have to setup links and library paths etc... It doesn't sound like the benefits would be worth it to me.

just use the old knx-hdinstall script as root to install knoppix to your harddrive. knoppix pretty much is a full distro what you dont have you can apt-get
