i seriously doubt this is the case, potato's base lacked man-db, an
MTA among other things, woody now has those (and i question why the
base needs an MTA, other then broken lilo dependencies)

also note a tarball of all the base .deb files is about 20MB, i have
not tried making a filesystem tarball to compare sizes that way.
