 And thanks from me to both of you.  On my own first-time build, I
seem to have used about 8GB (x86_64) with 677 MiB installed - still
need to fine-tune some of the options, and to decide if I really
want the languages I chose, but I've managed to overcome my dislike
of enormous packages.

 Shame it can't open .gnumeric and .abw files, and .xlsx files
(saved by gnumeric) crash it, but if I save as .xls and .doc in
gnumeric and abiword then it can open them.

 I think I'll be absent from the lists for a few days - need to play
with calc and writer before deciding if these are the way for me to
go :-)  So far, writer looks mostly good (the dead keys and my AltGr
keys from .Xmodmap all seem to work fine - abiword always ignored
some of the less-common dead key accented letters).  Good thing I
upgraded my desktop boxes this year, building this on my ancient
single processor x86_64 with one processor would take forever ;)

 Cheers.
