If you are using the symlink farm method, symlinks will be converted
to files on the disc; my guess is that the binary-all hierarchy is
full of duplicate files from binary-ARCH.
The Packages.cd files will also add a lot to the archive... not enough
to account for 122MB, but still a lot (say around 5-10).
