As I mentioned the problem could be unrelated.

I use rwalld to keep my htpc communicating with my office system, which is the computer I spend the most time. I get nice little popups at my office machine. I'm always tinkering and experimenting with my htpc and I need the communications mechanism to know what the htpc is doing so I can monitor.

I might very well have migrated to Debian this past spring if I had solved that one little problem. I could still migrate to Debian if I ever solve that problem.

I played with the configure parameters you provided.

First pass, all parameters:
DO_NOT_COMPILE='dcopperl kalyptus qtsharp xparts python'


Second pass:
DO_NOT_COMPILE='kalyptus qtsharp xparts python'


Third pass:


Perhaps then we're no longer talking about large chunks. Just one element. At least now we know the problem area.

Package size remains at about 8 MB. Obvious then is the python bindings comprise a significant portion of the package.

Of course, python bindings are important to many people.

Amarok scripts are written in python, but I don't know whether those scripts depend upon kdebindings or are just run external to Amarok.
