Hi, I am using Linux Mint 12 (Ubuntu 11.10 based) mixed with Debian unstable. In fact, I have almost all the components of SAGE installed on my system (python-scipy, R, maxima, ... etc). I am wondering if there are any options available in Makefile or configure file those allow me build only the sage's interface to these installed packages rather than build __everything from source spkg__ ?

Welcome to Sage!
The short answer is no. A long time ago we had a Debian version along these lines, but that is not current, though I think some folks have been working on it.
However, Sage on Gentoo sort of does this, using system versions.
The longer answer is about Sage's philosophy of "batteries included", which someone else might want to comment on - there are endless discussions of this on the Sage development list every so often.
