There are generally two main threads to stealth builds: songs, chiefly Silence and Lorien, which can be used without reinforcement for a pacifist victory, and stabbing with Assassination and Subtlety. Song of Lorien puts enemies back to sleep, Assassination takes selected enemies out.

In either case it is hugely advantageous to have Listen so you can plan ahead and avoid being trapped.

I posted a number of thoughts on stealth/pacifist runs here: http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=8757.
