The script just works this way. You tell it at the command line which
binaries to look at. With -L you say where the libraries are (if it
shouldn't use the system libraries). It will reduce all libraries it can
find a pic file for. Other libraries are copied to DEST.
I have two (or three?) bug reports against the current version in
boot-floppies, one only affects C++ using binaries. I will try to put some
time aside to look at them...
