The 'pbi_makeport' produced PBI package with all of the Avahi and DBus binaries, mans, etc. included. This is not very efficient, because Netatalk need only client libraries (etc.) to communicate to these daemons.

At this moment the pbi_makeport command prunes anything which isn't
listed as a RUN_DEPEND / LIB_DEPEND, getting rid of the BUILD_DEPENDS
and such. I'm not sure if there is a *clean* way to auto-prune other
things at the moment. It is possible to prune stuff manually by setting
"PBI_EXCLUDELIST= " in pbi.conf though.
