And that may be true for the popular distros, but Arch does not "add" to
their kernels/packages _unnecessarily_, so neither does archaudio.org :)

Somewhat different POV here. I run Gentoo and therefore everything is
built from source. Clearly to each his or her own.
But with respect to the kernel it's my experience that 98% of the
stuff any of us doing low-latency audio stuff is identical and then
the only differences would be chipset specific things. These days with
only 4-5 chipset manufacturers (Intel, Nvidia, ATI, AMD and then maybe
Via and a couple of others) it seems to me that we should have a
non-distro specific web page somewhere that goes through this for
audio kernels. I suspect that Fernando already has this somewhere for
CCRMA. Possibly leverage from that?
Personally I don't like distro kernels because distro packagers are
forever adding things to the kernel that aren't tested by the
rt-kernel team and I don't want to deal with those problems.
Just my 2 cents,
