Probably, yeah ... it's not like slang where there's 200k of weirdness
that we never use that just evaporates when we reduce the library.
However I was able to save about 30K or so on Alpha when I tried
reducing newt. We're not at the point where we need this in order to
fit root.bin on a floppy, so it's not a big deal.
And the architectures where there are space concerns are the ones that
can't use library reduction anyway.
I also tried reducing libpopt and got no savings at all ... YMMV
