Insert is not what I had in mind. What I wanted was a LFS like base system 
(No GUI, no extras) that I can use as a foundation for building an embedded 
Zebra router, NFS server, or asterisk PBX. My target size is under 64MB, for 
deployment with CF cards.

Anyway, the point of the post was to know the size of the LFS system once
