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, libgcc_s.so, 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.
