I totally agree, I'm really wondering if the current API would allow to create a tree
which would contain only
files needed on machine..... Typically i never use sparc or mips file in kernel
compilation. I'm dreaming of a day
when i could download these different parts:
Kernel core source
x86 specific part
any driver i need

A few tar -xvzf later i'd got a working kernel, with no space lost on my HD.
