That's fine with a lot of free space, but I need to install a depends, then=
 clean. Install the next depends and clean again, one by one, instead of do=
ing the cleaning at the end of the process.
The other thing I can do is forget about my meta-package and make a script =
that calls a lot of mini meta-packages, each one with some few depends, the=
n a cleaning is done several times while building all the packages, to avoi=
d running out of disk space.
