I wonder if we can prepare shrinked base sets for installation
(with options strings in set/base/mi files?) by tweaking scripts
and Makefiles in src/distrib/sets...
There is one more minor problem in the current method.
Extracting whole base.tgz into objdir for makefs can fail
on case insensitive file systems like Cygwin because
base.tgz includes both /usr/bin/Mail and /usr/bin/mail.
