Hi,
the attached patch removes lib/libjs_static.ajs from the output ofmozjs, a 30 MB static library. This mozjs is part of the closure ofgdm and gnome, so it reduces the size of most desktop systems.
The reason why I found that file, is because it is mentionned inBLFS: http://linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/general/js68.html

Awesome! I figure that things seem to keep working without it?

At least gdm still builds, but I'm not sure how to test it properly

You could make a vm-image with %desktop-services, which uses GDM.

Thanks, that's a good idea. I managed to build a vm that way andunfortunately gdm fails to start, so the static library must be used insome way. I'm closing this without pushing anything.

Okay, but did it work without your patch?
