Distributions are made of packages, why not just take an existing
distribution and only install the packages you want? Starting a new
distribution is a lot of work.

I'd just take some distribution that you know and configure it to meet
your needs. You probably want to think about power management a bit,
perhaps add some logic that will automatically shutdown freerunner if
battery energy goes below 20% to make sure that you'll never completely
drain the battery.
