In addition to comments I posted to Nick, a moment ago, if you want to
explore on the BSD side instead, I'd consider NetBSD the most stripped
down of that family -- though FreeBSD otherwise better meets my needs.

I'd surmise that NetBSD's relative sparseness is a side-effect of its
extremely portable design, for whatever that's worth.
