Changes (by cscott):

 * cc: tomeu (added)


 Let's order our work by size removed.  The target is 300Mb for our build,
 we've got 50M to trim.  When we run out of bigger things to trim, we
 should move to ~1M things like portaudio -- but, basically, every fork has
 a cost.  I'd rather fork "only" 10 packages which shave 5M each to meet
 our size goal than fork 50 packages shaving only 1M each.

 So, the short answer for portaudio is probably "not yet".

 In the meantime, the sugar packages have grown a dependency on xorg-x11
 -server-Xephyr which adds 2M.  That's a regression, and to a package for
 which we are the upstream, so we should certain fix that.  cc'ing tomeu,
 not because he's responsible, but because he might know who is.
