Ran across this Linux distribution:
http://inx.maincontent.net/
It's made up entirely of programs and libraries that don't need to work with X Windows.

I think Vector Linux already has a lot of the command line programs they're using, plus some they haven't added.  Here are lists of some of the programs they included in their distribution:
http://inx.maincontent.net/1.0-versions-package-list
http://inx.maincontent.net/files/inx-selections

If anything looks interesting, I bet it would be easy enough to add it to the Vector Linux repository.

Anyone else have any other command line programs they find useful?

Good list indeed, but I think we have most of packages.

I was thinking about compiling emacs, with some plugins, and 'new' vim (7.2).

a new "vim" would be great. Could you compile it with clipboard enabled so that one can paste in from other GUI apps? At present it is not and neither is the GUI interface...

I don't know what would happen if someone doesn't install X windows and tries to use that vim... but for the moment, I'll enable most things in vim, or I could even try to package a few vim versions.

I've tried to package it some times but never got it right.  Let's pray for that being the one.
