Gentoo, anyone? With Sabayon they have a standard compilation and kind of a current snapshot of portage to test on, isn't there any Arch based distribution Michael could use?
With the invention of RPMFusion, that's all you really need anymore, besides flash from the adobe repo, but I use Chrome so no need.

As for an Arch based Distro, he could use ArchBang, although I've never tried it because I'm not a fan of OpenBox.
