Default buildworld questions.

I want to build my FreeBSD 7 from sources....
I wanna know which distributions do i need under src?
What i mean is when installing distributions i sellect src and under that, there are some crap that i don't need, like games....
My question is what do i need to build FreeBSD from minimal sources....

as far as i see i need
man < might skip, but it's way better when you can take a look at help
maybe some more...

Also should i update my source tree with CSUP?
if so what would be recomended tags etc, if i want to stay on as much stable as possible (i think i need RELENG_7 or RENENG_7_0, again, i don't rememeber exact name, and have no time to google atm..., these to got me confused when i was reading handbook)

P.S. I'm writing this from memory on windows system....

Thanks in advance, i hope you understand what i want to know.
