Hm... I wonder how much we could gain - I guess most of those libs are
used by mke2fs and e2fsck alone...

Anyway, I just had a look at the Policy doc for minimal guidelines,
but did not find anything there (or elsewhere).  Is there a common way
of doing things, or does each package make its own cooking ?  Eg,
glibc has some other files in addition to the pic lib...
