To keep the image size below the 1.4M limit ?

FWIW, i'm playing with the netboot image and just built one with
bogl-bterm and rootskel-locale, which so far is running pretty well.
Without bterm, (french) strings got truncated at the first non-ASCII

With those two extra udebs added, the image is 1.6M fat. On the other
hand, we don't care, since this image (as far as i understand) is meant
to be downloaded by TFTP.

It'd also be cool to include nic-extra-modules, for those poor guys like
me who still have old ISA NE2000 cards everywhere.
