Set up /home on a separate partition during your re-build.  Make a
/home/software directory and copy the ziped tar files you downloaded,
from say CPAN, into it so you can get the "customization" of your
system back without remembering all of the special "packages".
/etc/XF86Config is another file to save a copy of in /home/software.
