rookie question: so I've done a svn checkout of the debian/
dir from DebianGIS svn, and put it in the extracted tarball's
main dir, and run 'debuild binary' from there. How do I generate
a .changes file?

oh, I misread that as 2mb not 24.. yes, whoa.

breakdown of much of it:
/usr/share/opencpn$ du-sh *
1.2M    s57data    # cartographic rendering rules (text files)
2.0M    sounds     # custom made .wav alarms (binary)
7.8M    tcdata     # tide data from GPL xtide port (text files)
                 the existing xtide-data package can help here.
6.9M    wvsdata    # world vector boundary from same xtide port

pkg the natural earth.org world boundary shapefiles? (public

(wtides32 port of xtides for Windows is GPL, but the author is
a bit of a jerk about charging $25 or something like that for the
source code duplication fee, so source for that not avail online
AFAIK and these files are probably taken from the .exe install)

finally, the full reference manual is 6.2mb, much of it .png
images in /usr/share/doc/opencpn/doc/images. I'll have to run
my bulk pngcrush script* on that to see if that helps. (it doesn't
flatten the color palette though, which can make a big difference)

[*] see scripts/ dir in the [modern] gpsdrive source code
