I've had success with 1.2.  I have encountered some packages that
require some tweaking.  I would wager that the problems you are seeing
relate to too many compiler optimizations while building the kernel.

Immediately after I got the base packages stabilized I blacklisted the
core modules to prevent them from being rebuilt. These include - linux,
grub, lilo, gcc, binutils and a couple others...
