[maemo-users] reclaiming space on root filesystem

I only have about 25 MB available on the root filesystem.
To update to PR 1.2 you supposedly need 42 MB...

/usr/lib has by far the most space used at about 192 MB.

$ du -sc /usr/lib/* | sort -n | tail
3136	/usr/lib/gconv
3240	/usr/lib/debug
3528	/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1400.7
6292	/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10
6880	/usr/lib/browser
10488	/usr/lib/libQtGui.so.4.5.3
22544	/usr/lib/microb-engine
24008	/usr/lib/python2.5
29068	/usr/lib/locale
192560	total

The biggest culprit seems to be this file in the posix-locales

$ du /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive
29068	/usr/lib/locale/locale-archive

What's the best way to find out what I should remove or
perhaps reinstall (using apt-get?)?
