Build Pine with minimal disk space
Patch is available for version: pine 4.63 pine 4.64
This patch is only for "Unix" Pine and tries to build Pine with the minimal disk space possible. This is useful if you are running low on quota and need to build Pine from source.
This goal is not quite achieved, but something more or less equivalent is done. The first restriction is that you need to be able to unpack Pine. This requires about 24 MB of space, so the goal of the patch is to make you be able to build Pine using always less than this original size of space. This is accomplished by
After you apply this patch and build Pine, you will obtain a copy of pico, pilot, rpdump, rpload and Pine. You can reduce their sizes more by stripping them (e.g. "strip pine" reduces Pine about 2 MB).
This patch is not included in the all of the above patch, but it can easily be added, as it will not cause any conflict.
