I'd be interested to know what size your kernel is when you do that. I
know Linux kernels have been built at 16Kb or something silly but then
it couldn't actually do anything.

When I do this for OpenBSD I get it down to about a quarter of stock at
2 megabytes and there are no modules even on OpenBSD by default.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
