Which installation profile should I choose to have a minimal configuration with nouveau, xorg-server, dwm, st, surf, vim, mpv, moc, firefox, libreoffice, etc ...?

-> default / linux / amd64 / 17.0 (stable)
or
-> default / linux / amd64 / 17.0 / desktop (stable)?

You want the desktop profile as a start point for that.

yes. Got it. I had a misconception about using the profiles. Now I understand that it only conditions a set of proper flags. Thank you very much.

Profiles do a little more than that - as one quickly finds out when trying to emerge xorg over a base profile ;)
