how to tell what packages are unused on a debian server?

  just a cleanup-related question but on a debian lenny server that
i've inherited, i'm curious to know which packages have no value
whatever and that i can delete.  i recall there's a utility that will
identify unused libraries but i'm curious about what else i can
pinpoint that can be removed.

  this system is a web/mail server and, since its IP address is
assigned statically and another system is responsible for all DNS/DHCP
functionality internally, i conclude that i can remove the
dhcp-related packages.  that's just one example.

  any utilities that can help out in this regard?  thanks.
