Re: PACKAGECONFIG variables.

Yes, of course. Let's add a *-minimal package configs,
if none are set, we'll let it autodetect + add full dependencies otherwise.
Is it OK for you if I set it to auto detect by default? , this would imply
a local.conf addition to optimize for footprint.
I'm guessing package config selects cannot be set from an image file, I'll give that a try tomorrow.

XenAPI is used by XenServer and Xen Cloud Platform.  There is currently
no underlying metadata support for these packages, so this should be

I do, in fact have binary size constraints.  I see where you are going
with this, but would it be possible instead to add a "detect" or "all"
to PACKAGECONFIG?  I suppose an alternative would be to add "*-minimal"
to PACKAGECONFIG which tweak the configure to create minimal build
