Why would you need to parse comps.xml? I believe Core still contains
stuff like bluez-utils, which you won't need in a server.
If you REALLY want a minimal Redhat-based system I think a simple

yum --installroot=/path/to/new/root yum openssh-server

would do the trick. If it's for dom0, then you can add what you need
(bridge-utils, vconfig) later
