I really don't like the general idea of introducing differences
between images and systems installed through sysinst.  It's confusing
for users, and also means that testing of one is less likely to apply
to the other.

I see that libstdc++_pic.a is much larger than the other versions of
the same library:

   # cd /usr/lib
   # ls -al libstdc*
   -r--r--r--  1 root  wheel   4539634 Aug  8 14:00 libstdc++.a
   lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel        16 Aug  8 14:00 ->
   lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel        16 Aug  8 14:00 ->
   -r--r--r--  1 root  wheel   2030136 Aug  8 14:00
   -r--r--r--  1 root  wheel   4787754 Aug  8 14:00 libstdc++_p.a
   -r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  28835160 Aug  8 14:00 libstdc++_pic.a

and that it contains .debug_info sections, which the others don't:

  # size -A -d libstdc++_pic.a | fgrep .debug_info | wc -l
  # size -A -d libstdc++.a | fgrep .debug_info | wc -l

Other libraries also have _pic.a files that are much larger than the
others versions.  Is there a bug that causes them not to be CTF-converted,
or is this deliberate?
