No, that is not possible, just as it is not possible for libc and other 
libraries that get reduced. Or at least, it's not possible to do reduction 
_solely_ on the basis of a udeb (you need the pic files).

OTOH, just adding the lib in the udeb cannot do any harm I guess, except 
that it could result in the full library getting loaded during anna, which 
would be a waste of memory. I'll look at that option though.
