I'm not sure what you mean by compressed.

Part of the difference you are seeing, I think, is that when we install packages, everything is installed -- the documentation, header files, libraries and executibles. I don't know whether releng deletes parts of packages they don't need (such as header files or the material in /usr/share/doc), but if they do that would bring the size down. - -- William Hubbs gentoo accessibility team lead williamh@g.o -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.11 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkoXNG4ACgkQblQW9DDEZTi8dQCfYunkUNnPpdItOVnrYbOxlk21 Uk4Anj4V/UHoc1bPRUBHImbOpdz8XOzy =J//Z -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
