[vlc-devel] VLC configuration setting to remove some unneeded files...

As part of my custom build, here is what I do:

$ make install                          ;build and install vlc

$ cd $(INSTALLDIR)                ;dir where vlc is installed
$ rf -rf include                          ;Why is include directory installed?
$ find . -name '*\.la' -delete      ;No need for .la files either
$ cd $(INSTALLDIR)/share
$ rm -rf applications/ doc/ kde4/ locale/ man/ vlc/       ;remove everything except icons dir

Instead of doing it this way, I am wondering if there are any configuration settings that I overlooked that might help the make script not generate these files in the first place.

Thank you in advance for your help.
