Join the club!  I *think* I installed:
  - pdftex-0.12o-8
    - web-7.2a.tar.gz
    - web2c-7.2b.tar.gz
  - pdftexlib-0.12
  - latex (latest from ctan)
  - babel (latest from ctan)
  - latex/graphics (latest from ctan)
  - latex/hyperref (latest from ctan)
  - latex/tools (latest from ctan)
  - jknappen/ec fonts (needed some tools as well)
  - type 1 fonts (from Corel 6, needs fontinst)
  - more type 1 fonts (from FrameMaker, just symlinked .pfa files)
  - jadetex
    - patches from jadetex/cooked

This leaves me with the following directories:
  - texmf
     - web2c
     - tex
        - generic
           - babel
           - config
           - fontinst
        - latex
           - amsfonts
           - base
           - config
           - fancyhdr
           - graphics
           - hyperref
           - minitoc
           - misc
           - ot2cyr
           - psfonts
           - tools
        - jadetex
     - pdftex
        - base
        - plain
        - texinfo
     - makeindex
     - fonts
        - afm
        - pfm
        - pk
        - source
        - tfm
        - type1
        - vf

This was all on top of an existing installation here, of who knows what
version of TeX (I think it is teTeX04-0.1, what ever that is, but I am
not sure).  There is lots of material in our tex tree, but little of it
is actually used with this setup (mostly fonts).  But then, I only use
pdfjadetex, i.e. pdftex with jadetex as the preloaded format.

Feel free to ask me more details, but beware that I have little TeX
experience.  It was really difficult for me to figure out how to set
this up for myself, but it seems to work at least satisfactorily now. As
for instructions, they usually tell you to `copy these files to the
appropriate directories', as if I was supposed to know what appropriate
should mean (and sometimes you'll have to guess what files the author is
talking about).  I ended up figuring all that out through lots of trial
and error... 

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.  However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.  It is hard to be sure where they are going
to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead.  --RFC1925, "The Twelve Networking Truths"
