I got the impression that I would start with a empty dir
and then added just the few rpm:s that I need.

But it is quite the opposite,
you start with "everything"  and then you remove 95-99%
(since I plan to use it on a small embedded platform).

And the rootfs is in /opt/eldk/armVFP/,
and the fact that it is 1Gb is correct.
