While your at it how about the minimum requirements to install into 
"Linux From Scratch", such as the posting of the environment variables, 
(set), and a current source code for just what your requesting.  I've 
noticed that all TDE wants to be installed into main-stream linux 
distro's and they are all mostly bloat-ware.
