Description of problem:
I just installed the XFree86-4.2.1-20 errata for Red Hat 8 and I noticed that
there is extreme bloat in the packages. I don't know if it is because of
unstripped binaries or something but these packages occupy 300Mb more than the
previous ones (easily noticed when you are installing it on a old box serving as
a router). For instance, the XFree86 package is now 168.245.085bytes when the
one in Red Hat 9 is just 36.744.769bytes. Maybe it is supposed to be like this
but it is strange nonetheless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Ok, this was already on bugzilla... just found out after listing all XFree86 bugs...
