Almost :) First libnewt needs to be reduced, then libslang and after
that libm, so that only the really needed math-symbols get in :(

Right now the size of root.bin is 1717580 bytes :( I put all my hope
in getting libm to shrink because its size is 577440 bytes
(uncompressed)[1] and 303227 bytes in compressed form (gzip --best on
the file). Now if we just substract that from the above we would have
a compressed root of 1414353 bytes :) Ok, this is a very coarse
estimation but it could work out...

I'd very much like to proove this by manually getting a
very-much-reduced libm on the disks but haven't figured out the right
commandline to build a reduced lib (spying in mklibs.sh isn't very
enlighting ...). Could anyone tell me how to do this? Maybe this could
at least help to get out manually-prepared-Alpha-bootdisks to get some
testing on them going.


[1] the unreduced libm is 665710 bytes big which made me wonder in the
    first place :)
