Yeah, but perl is pretty much required on Debian anyway, so shouldn't
count against it.

OTOH, the lighttpd includes all its modules, and might have more
functionality than Apache2 without any of its optional modules. Or not;
I've not done a detailed look.

Anyway, I'm not sure "package install size" is all that interesting a
comparison number; the main reason for looking at variant webservers is,
I'd guess, memory usage. Of course, that's a pain to quantify.
