I guess that completely depends. I do belive gpm is require by vim,
modutils are require by the rc scripts I do believe.
And *I* require man pages as well if I use vserver for hosting for
others *they* require man pages.
Sure you might know all the switches for grep, find and tar but I sure
do not know them all just the basic ones (been a unix admin for 8
years now with everything from Linux, Freebsd, bsd386, Irix, HPUX) and
then you have things like ps and a few others that are different
depending on the system.
AS> actual minimal set is even smaller. Although debian's packaging system is far more advanced than rh's, I don't really think that rh requires bigger number of packages. I may post my minimal set

I was asked to post what I had come up with. I guess my notion in my
mail wasn't enough that it was what I felt was needed and useful.
