I had thought about that and have tried removing packages but haven't 
found the source of the largess yet.
Is there an easy way to find out the sizes of parts of the final image 
to see if something looks out of line?
(I don't think I have the same problem that Chien-Yu Chen referenced, 
since my buildroot and kernel images are not increasing in size with 
each build.)
