While we are at it, what is the reason for the frysk (f9) package to
have a size of 146,651,842 bytes? It installs 12 binaries to /usr/bin,
each having 7.5MB. Seems they are not dynamically linked against the
libfrysk* libs, is that intentional?
Also, there are two "test-core" files of 21MB each, what are these
needed for? (could they be moved to a separate package?)
