Saved some, but not as much as expected.  What was the big space saver was
#include <xservers-XFree3>
#include <interesting-redhat>
#include <interesting-fromcd23>
#include <linuxtag2000>
This dropped the size  of the minimal first CD from 580 MB to 343MB,
freeing up 237MB.  No wonder your 700MB images made a difference.

At the moment I am finding the amount of space each task takes on a CD.
