Size concerns. Both the disc1 and disc2 ISO images on ia64 overflow
currently and we need to trim things down. While this can easily be
done by axing from ports (either packages on disc1 or the ports
collection itself on disc2), it's good to pay attention to what
excessive baggage we already have and to avoid making it worse. I'd
rather have commonly used ports than have the unused ability to have
IP over serial lines and other low-end solutions that simply do not
fit on a high-end platform.
