Sorry for the delay, I'm still catching up w/ mail.

Why does this matter for an embedded system? Yes, I know space is tight. 
What I don't see is why the fact we build it means it actually shows up on 
the device. ??

If you don't want nvi, don't put it on your flash installs. :-)

I do not mind the build option, I am however concerned about the arguement 
in favor of it.

Take care,
