Could you explain what mean 'installing from sources'?

Starting with just the base install and adding whatever 
non-meta-packages you wish?

Actually compiling Ubuntu source packages?

Compiling and installing from upstream?

It would also be helpful to understand what you are attempting to 
achieve in the end.
