Minimal clue server install is not what I was aiming for.

I started this minimal INL server install idea to address the complaint 
by Tom last year that building and installing the server is difficult 
for less skilled INL server owners.

So I'm looking for ways to avoid compiling things that are not needed,
which will therefore reduce the package dependencies.

For example, by avoiding xsg we avoid a requirement for X-Windows, and
by avoiding tools/showgalaxy and pledit we avoid curses.

Trimming it down will also reduce the build time.
