Yes, and coreutils is still linked to libselinux1 even if you don't
use the SELinux functions. ATM, it looks like libselinux1 is a
whopping 132 kbytes.

If you only want to link your binaries to libraries and features
you're actively going to use, I think either using apt-src heavily or
moving to gentoo would be better options for you. Debian is
distributing binaries which usually have most options turned on and I
don't foresee that changing.
