Just tried installing in pbuilder:

root@volta:/# apt-get install libmysqlclient15off
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libmysqlclient15off mysql-common
Need to get 1873kB of archives.
After unpacking 4428kB of additional disk space will be used.

root@volta:/# apt-get install libsqlite3-0
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libsqlite3-0
Need to get 197kB of archives.
After unpacking 459kB of additional disk space will be used.

root@volta:/# apt-get install libpq4
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  debconf debconf-i18n libkrb53 liblocale-gettext-perl libpq4 libssl0.9.8 libtext-charwidth-perl
  libtext-iconv-perl libtext-wrapi18n-perl
Need to get 265kB/1933kB of archives.
After unpacking 6906kB of additional disk space will be used.

libpq4 pulls in additional stuff, trying that separately:

root@volta:/# apt-get install debconf debconf-i18n libkrb53 liblocale-gettext-perl libssl0.9.8 libtext-charwidth-perl libtext-iconv-perl libtext-wrapi18n-perl
Need to get 0B/1668kB of archives.
After unpacking 6136kB of additional disk space will be used.

root@volta:/# apt-get install libpq4
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libpq4
Need to get 265kB of archives.
After unpacking 770kB of additional disk space will be used.


So from the figures (especially the 4.4M form mysql) it looks worthwhile to not
depend on everything.
