How to build a rack?

Depending on the outcome of the next few months spent placing other people's gear, I'll likely start building my own rack.

What's the best way to begin? Specifics like manufacturer aside, what's the best way to decide how many of what pro to buy?
Is there a concentration (or concentrations) of sizes that tend to pop up most frequently during a route? Is it more valuable to have a little bit of everything?

Complete sets of cams/nuts? Is complete overkill?

This is just to get myself started with the thinking, of course... it's unlikely i'll start anytime before fall, but if all goes well that's right around the time i'll need to start buying my own pro.
