Laurynas,

I fit everything I need on 1 CD, by not including the /xfree directory
(370MB), the /release/XFree86 directory (80MB), and not including the [prev]
and [test] packages listed in setup.ini:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
my $dir = shift || '/hdc1/cygwin';
my $file = $dir . '/setup.ini';
open(FH, $file) || die "Can't open $file: $!";
my $prev = 0;
my $line = 0;
while (<FH>) {
      $line++;
      if (/\[prev\]/ || /\[test\]/) {
            $prev++;
            next;
      }
      next unless $prev;
      if (/^\s*$/) {
            $prev = 0;
            next;
      }
      if (/^\w+:\s*(\S+)\s+/) {
            $_ = $1;
            next unless m|/|;
            $file = $dir . '/' . $_;
            if (-e $file) {
                  print "deleting $file\n";
                  unlink($file);
            }
      }
}

Hope that helps,

Ross
