A decrease in size of 15% to 20% is possible if you delete the .gmo
files in the tarballs.
As an experiment the gmo files were deleted from the gnumeric tarballs.
Nobody noticed they were gone.
So there is really no reason to distribute them in tarballs.
I've mentioned this before, here in this mailing list but the message
seems to have been lost in the swarm of mails. Only Havoc replied and
asked how to not make them build automatically.
