Description Matthias Andree 2004-03-01 14:20:03 UTC
This patch stops the post-install phase from breaking a hard link that led to a
double packaging of the static e2fsck executable under different names and
caused waste of space (read: bloat) in the binary package.

The shared e2fsck executable is no longer installed or packaged, saving another
100+ kByte (uncompressed).

User-visible change: e2fsck.static is gone, e2fsck is now the static version,
the pkg-message has tracked this change and been adjusted accordingly.

The patch cuts the FreeBSD-4 i386 binary package size from 2,200 to 1,316 kB
without any loss in functionality.

Savings on other architectures or versions have not been researched.
