	We can certainly save some space on the INSTALL kernel:
	 - Compile -Os
	 - Ben's NFS_V2ONLY (may not have that name right).

	I was planning on taking a pass through all (*) INSTALL kernals
	and making sure they were compiled -Os given noone objected.

	Is there any reason why we really NFS3 in install kernels?
	I'd be inclined to have all three of the above by default...

	(*) except bebox which does not use -O2, possibly due to codegen
