reclaiming space on root filesystem

I only have about 25 MB available on the root filesystem.
To update to PR 1.2 you supposedly need 42 MB...
http://wiki.maemo.org/Cannot_install_firmware_update

/usr/lib has by far the most space used at about 192 MB.

$ du -sc /usr/lib/* | sort -n | tail
3136 /usr/lib/gconv
3240 /usr/lib/debug
3528 /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.1400.7
6292 /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10
6880 /usr/lib/browser
10488 /usr/lib/libQtGui.so.4.5.3
22544 /usr/lib/microb-engine
24008 /usr/lib/python2.5
29068 /usr/lib/locale
192560 total

The biggest culprit seems to be this file in the posix-locales
package:

$ du /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive
29068 /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive


What's the best way to find out what I should remove or
perhaps reinstall (using apt-get?)?

Did you check http://wiki.maemo.org/Free_up_rootfs_space already?

Yes, and it was helpful. The most valuable steps were move things
from the root fs to /home and making a sym link.

I wanted to optify things, but had trouble installing pymaemo-optify:

Nokia-N900-42-11:/tmp# apt-get install pymaemo-optify

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
bzip2 easy-chroot lzma thai-ttf libgnomeprint2.2-data libgnomeprint2.2-0
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be upgraded:
pymaemo-optify

Root file system (UBIFS) is compressed, whereas that's uncompressed
size. To know compressed size, you can try what it's size would
be lzop'ed. (UBIFS uses the LZO compression algorithm)
