I just unpacked each and every Package in hamm/binary-m68k in turn and 
run a du on it. :)
The 74 K file will thus only contain directories in the data.tar.gz
files and not config files generated during installation. But the error
per Package should be way less than the 5% extra space per drive one
normaly has.
