I actually tried to manage this from pimpmycat too.


(mentioned in the readme script)

This is unfortunately a bit impure, as it installs some stuff that
isnt' strictly necessary for catalyst... (eg emacs) so I wound up
mixing my personal preferences, which should probably be taken out.
But, as you see, it does include build-essentials -- because you need
that to get catalyst working, I found.

I'm pretty sympathetic to the approach however. It's a kind of deliberate overkill to be sure you've actually sandboxed everything.
