I can see that, but since we're specifically talking about slow machines, I
think "priority" packages should be evaluated individually on what value they
provide under that criterion. E.g., $BIGPKG is slow, and slow apps are not
going to be my first choices to run on slow machines. I don't object to
$BIGPKG being built, but wouldn't necessarily list it a priority. Which
dependencies (of www/firefox-gtk2) are you most interested in?

If you want to include a GUI browser, I'd pick www/dillo. Xaw/*tif/FLTK are
going to more useful on the low end.
