Yes, exactly. I know what CentOS is about (RHEL minus support), and I 
don't want to use another distribution. I also know that normally it 
only uses Red Hat packages.

My concern was indeed about the feasibility of an external repo 
containing a bundle of "KDE light" packages. I remember (from Slackware) 
that KDE packages can be rebuilt without certain stuff, using the 
DO_NOT_COMPILE=xxxxx yyyy zzzz variable. In fact, I've done it before, 
but I don't quite know how to do this the CentOS way, if I may say so.

Any suggestions?
