all of my systems, whether desktops or servers, i start with the minimal 
install.  from there, i use the ports collection to buildout anything i need.  
i know this is probably the long way around for most cases, but i feel in the 
end, there is nothing on there that i didnt deliberately put on there.

next time up, try a minimal install, and then just cd right into the directory 
of the port that will define your system.  when you 'make install clean', it 
should process just the dependencies that your PBX needs.
