Description of problem:
A "minimal" install installs the lha package.

lha is *not* needed on a minimal system. LHa archives are not anywhere
near as common as they used to be, and anyone who needs lha is
probably running a full-blown workstation. If anyone needs lha on a
minimal system, furthermore, it's just a single small package that can
be easily installed using rpm, yum, up2date, or what-have-you.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the installer.
2. etc.
3. If you are offered the option of upgrading, choose to do a fresh
install instead.
4. Choose an installation type (I chose "Custom").
5. etc.
6. Choose a "Minimal" package set.
7. Finish the installation.
8. Reboot the system and log in as root.
9. Run "rpm -q lha"

Actual Results:  lha-1.14i-14

Expected Results:  package lha is not installed

Additional info:
This is one small but necessary step toward making the Fedora Core
"minimal" install truly minimal. Certainly there are other packages
that should be removed, but this is the only one that's **really**
jumping out at me right now.

If you want minimal, install 'Core', not 'Base'. (You can do this with

It is superfluous, though. Removed, will be in future builds.
