rpm tool and its database should be removed from RHEV-H to decrease the image size.
/var/lib/rpm is taking >10MB and it's useless except for debugging and during development.

NVRs of installed package are available in the manifest generated during the build and stored in isolinux/manifest-{s,}rpm.txt
