Thanks Karl.   I have tried that and it "almost" works.   I added E "extra 
fonts" and a few others as well, also selected
do not install macro/font doc tree
do not install macro/font source tree
total size around 500Mb, which I can just accommodate, and ran my pdfjadetex 
it built my .pdf file and visually the file is fine, but the tex err file 
had a few complaints, specifically

No file T2Acmr.fd.

! LaTeX Error: This NFSS system isn't set up properly.

I looked back in the .err file from when I tex'd using the full install and 
saw it found a file


and sure enough there is no 
./usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/latex/cyrillic in my custom-build 
tree -  so I thought I would just copy that one dir from the full build into 
the custom build, which I did, and to my surprise it still gave the exact 
same complaint.    I guess the lower-upper case distinction is significant!

I trie once more, this time choosing every possible latex option, (but still 
rejecting macro/font doc and source trees) and still same complaint.   So 
now I give up.   Maybe I can ignore this error, latex certainly continued 
ok, but do you or anyone know what options I would need to specify to 
provide latex with its T2Acmr.fd ?

For the record, here is the output of my final customization.
