we [] have been running out of disk space on the
drive we use to mirror for a few weeks now, and
we've run out of random other things to delete.  on a quick perusal
of where most of the disk space is being used on the NetBSD mirror,
we noticed that the arch/alpha section seems to over 260 meg, and
the other ones don't use anywhere near that [70 or so is i believe
the next largest].

is the alpha port the only one without shared libraries?  and what
is that 80-odd meg file, an image of a drive?

we're using a 2-gig drive right now, and we'll have another 1 gig
tacked on within a week, so that should solve the problem, im just
a little curious...
