Hehe. Don't worry, I was there to hit Ctrl-C before I filled the HD. :)

Aside from what I've already written, I don't know much else. I don't
have the time I need to help the community as much as I want. :( If it's
worth it i could put that stuff into a hint and send it, but since we
are now using gcc -s in the book, I figured it would make sense to add
g++ -s as well.

These are the types of thing of which I know not. :( All I do is install
one locale, dump gettext and ed. Could probably dump kbd, but some of
the utilities may be useful later on, so I don't. Then I mount --bind
and --strip-all the bins. Not much of a hint, IMO.

BTW, are kernel modules strippable (debug symbols, that is)?

Until 3.3 disappears, that entire hint is still valid and quite
informative. :) Maybe a hint is forming in the mist. If enough people
share their low diskusage tweaks, I can write it up. 


Freedom, morality, and the human dignity of the individual consists
precisely in this; that he does good not because he is forced to do so,
but because he freely conceives it, wants it, and loves it.
