setup w/char* eliminated is big

 finally got some breathing time.

Setup with char * eliminated is ~350K. Ouch.

This is why I've not committed my patch yet (I've been trying to see
*where* the extra 100K appeared from).

Chris - is this a problem? IMO it's still a tiny fraction of the total
distribution size, and we're reducing the number of reasons a setup
update is *required* as we make /etc/profile and so on into packages.

If this is not a problem, I expect we can release a new setup after the
weekend (or even at the beginning - whatever makes more sense).
