I was trying to create a minimal tclkit (with included Tk)

My first try was:
    Platform:  Windows/amd64
    * Packages: Tk 
    * Kit: Threaded
    * Kit Storage: Automatic
The resulting tclkit.exe was ok when used standalone, but then when I used it
for building a starpack
   tclsh sdk.kit app.exe -runtime tclkit.exe
I got a fatal error when launching app.exe:
   A critical error occurred.  ... Can't find a usable init.tcl
After various experiments, I realized that I needed to select the Metakit package
when launching KitCreator.

The resulting tclkit is now suitable for building starpacks (Successfully tested for win 32/64, linux 32/64 and macosx)
Good ! it works ! but my only complaint is that the size of these 'minimal' tclkit
is still huge ( between 4 and 5 MBytes ).

Is there a way to reduce further the size of these tclkits ?
