ah.. I read the package management information.  You may disregard this question.

Typically, when building these systems for the CDC, after they are stable, they strip the system bare.  Since hlfs is built with sources, a manual removal would be necessary.  For gcc in particular, would it be correct to simply remove the installed programs/libraries listed in the contents: c++, cc (link to gcc), cpp, g++, gcc, gccbug, and gcov, libgcc.a, libgcc_eh.a,, libstdc++.[a,so], and libsupc++.a?  Obviously, these tools are needed to build anything for the system, but a second, development system can be used for building while a production system could be stripped of any thing that can be used against it.
