Exactly. I don't think sysinst should do too much for this cases, but
instead show a short document at the end that points to a (to be
created) wiki page where we describe the details of configurations 
for small / slow machines.

This would include the makemandb hint (which actually is not *that* painfull
on most small / slow machines I have), and also point at something like
this to be added to /etc/ssh/sshd_config:
