Mute point really, the major reductions in size are in the latest
devel release and it would be significant work to get that into the
11.3.x release for either the x86 or arm platforms. Significant work
that would likely need library updates and various changes so not
something we're going to do for already stable 11.3.x.

On the other hand for the 12.x releases we'll get the latest version
for free as we're rebasing to F-17.
