As a fellow embedded guy, +1 to what Steve says.  Even things in the "Base"
should probably have package db entries so they can be removed.  Target
systems don't necessarily need a compiler or a full tool chain.  Then we
can converge on a consensus set of basic tools that most people will need,
with the opportunity to remove them =E2=80=93 rather than creating a
mini/micro/nano-FreeBSD
