Sounds good, thank you!

Yes, I think we should remove as many bundled libraries as possible.
Even if the build system does not use the bundled libFOO today, a future
version might start using it, and so when there's a security flaw found
in libFOO, we will have to double-check to make sure it's really not
being used.  It's much easier to just remove the bundled copies.

What do you think?
