If you're not running RFS and don't think you ever will (probably
only if yer gonna get some AT&T stuff hooked up), you can blow away:
And if you never use plot, you can wipe out:
If you're sure you're gonna stick with OpenWindows, get rid of
/usr/bin/sunview1 on down. Then, if you'll consider using X11R4
instead of OpenWindows, you can immediately gain about 10Mb in the
transition (OW has a few zillion fonts it never even uses) just by
blowing away the 25Mb OW dir (this is w/o examples etc) and putting on
the 15Mb X11 set. If you do, you can also get rid of
/usr/lib/libsuntool* [not libsunwindow*, it will need those],
/usr/lib/libxgl*, /usr/lib/xglfonts, /usr/lib/fonts, /usr/lib/font,
Oh, if you don't mind waiting every once in a while, you can clean out
any formatted man pages in /usr/man/cat[1-8ln].
/usr/src/sun can go away...
There, that should clean some room out. :)
