To save space, I'm usually installing system on HDD,
next removing all spare stuff (like: /usr/share/doc/*, mans etc,) and
next transferring data to the flash. This is mainly automatic job, so I
think, it could be automated. Is there currently any way to install packages without doc, man, info
and other not important files?

The more focused list for similar efforts is debian-embedded[1], where a lot of discussion with similar goals etc have happened in the past.

You may want to check this post[2] about one of the possible methods using scratchbox[3]. There is also some more information on the emdebian[4] site.
