If the requirements below are really the extent of what your client
is looking for it seems like there's no question at all: use
existing, supported, inexpensive or free solution that is available
right now (Joomla or Drupal), or spend a bunch of time and money
developing (and subsequently supporting) a custom CMS.
In the absence of some critical "it must be able to slice bread, too"
client requirement that existing solutions really just can't satisfy,
I'd go with either Drupal (or Joomla, for that matter) every time.
And for what it's worth, in most cases I'd probably try to write a
bread-slicing module for Drupal before I went with custom
