would it work without pccons and just use a serial console?
and if it's an embedded system running off of flash you could probably drop
fdc & fd0 too.
arch/i386/conf/std.i386 has EXEC_AOUT and EXEC_ELF32, so you can just use
that gets us to:
text data bss dec hex filename
503178 19148 58676 581002 8dd8a netbsd
Which isn't much of an improvement :-(
The routing code (rtsock.c, route.c, radix.c) is getting included, can we live
without it since we don't have networking?
and if.c, if_media.c, and sha1 in libkern (and other stuff).
