Well, yeah, you're probably right about that. I imagine the root
filesystem is fairly sparse, containing just what's needed for basic
compiling (i.e., likely no libcaca). I guess I wasn't completely
understanding what you meant about recompiling deps. But if the deps in
question are not where most of the bloat is (I think you mentioned 3),
maybe they could just be copied over discretely to the uclibc root_fs?
Another potential gotcha here is that you spoke about compiling in X
support, and I doubt many X deps are going to be in uclibc.
