 files (included in this package). It allows you to customize which
 definitions actually get generated. This is a space-saver over how this

 a package that unpacked to an excess of 30 megs.

locales-all: GNU C Library: Precompiled locale data

 This package contains the precompiled locale data for all supported locales.
 A better alternative is to install the locales package and only select
 desired locales, but it can be useful on a low-memory machine because some
 locale files take a lot of memory to be compiled.

multiarch-support: Transitional package to ensure multiarch compatibility

 This is a transitional package used to ensure multiarch support is present
 in ld.so before unpacking libraries to the multiarch directories. It can
 be removed once nothing on the system depends on it.

nscd: GNU C Library: Name Service Cache Daemon

 A daemon which handles passwd, group and host lookups
 for running programs and caches the results for the next
 query. You should install this package only if you use
 slow services like LDAP, NIS or NIS+.

nscd-dbgsym: debug symbols for package nscd

 A daemon which handles passwd, group and host lookups
 for running programs and caches the results for the next
 query. You should install this package only if you use
