Okay to delete bianry from orig.tar.gz ?

The upstream sources for xplot contain a pre-compiled i386 binary (in
case users don't want to compile themselves).  The binary is not relevant
to Debian:

$ ldd xplot
        libforms.so.0.81 => /usr/local/lib/libforms.so.0.81 (0x4000b000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libX11.so.6 (0x4006c000)
        libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x4010a000)
        libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x40113000)

It takes up a whole 1.2 MB.  Is is okay to delete it?

In the same vein, there's a static library needed to build xplot.
The package includes a precompiled version (which didn't work for
me) but I use the script to recreate it from sources anyway.  
Is it okay to delete it as well?

Obviously, my xplot_1.18.orig.tar.gz file won't correspond
exactly to upstream sources (it'll be smaller!), but that's okay
too right?

Thanks again,
Peter <psg@debian.org>
