Memory in 770 is not the strenght of it. The more you could
unload from it, the better. Command line apps do not take
resources as graphical ones and C files are less consuming
than C++ ...

Apt is fine to get files from repositories.It is debian way.
Would be interesting to port netbsd on 770. It could be smaller
and more prone to under-the-surface digging.

No diff, if you think in general. The final binary is the same.
You just use an option, that gives you more power and less
