Mostly just drivers, all the core functionality is there.  Oh, and filesystems, I've got got the ext4 driver (which also mounts my ext[23] volumes), NFS client/server, JFFS2 and UBIFS though VFAT and ISO9660 could be added without much penalty.

On my embedded system I know what devices I have and what I need to compile; distros have to compile /everything/ including all the really bit graphics and storage drivers and most of the obscure filesystems.
