[Xorp-users] Reducing Xorp binary setup size ?

Thanks Ben,

I have checked the patch it is impressive in size reduction...

But this is not running (died while searching for xorp_igmp , as it disabled
module due to disable_ipv6) .. so then I tried to compile it with just
disable_fw and disable_profile .. it again being self killed in xorp startup
(rtr_mgt process) 

I have sent you logs .. 

1) latest ct xorp's startup log 
2) Config file 
3) Same config file same machine using regular xorp (just to conform my 
   setup) , which was working fine. 

So I doubt that , by applying disable_ipv6 and disable_fw few of the
dependencies are there and that's why xorp is not being able to start VIFs
(as per log)

Pls see the logs...

I pushed another change to compile out the profiling code, saves another
180k or
so on my system.

Try compiling like this:
scons -j2 disable_ipv6=yes disable_fw=yes disable_profile=yes

If you get any patches to conditionally remove more ipv6 code or something
else, please
post it for review.
