To open text file with editor such as Emacs you need complex
dependencies. On Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, they are listed as: librsvg
gpm giflib libxpm libotf m17n-lib gtk3 hicolor-icon-theme
desktop-file-utils alsa-lib gnutls jansson cairo harfbuzz

Emacs is huge software. Complex.

sqlite3 is 1.6M with these dependencies;

        linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffee8782000)
        libreadline.so.8 => /usr/lib/libreadline.so.8 (0x00007f47f83f7000)
        libm.so.6 => /usr/lib/libm.so.6 (0x00007f47f82b3000)
        libdl.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00007f47f82ac000)
        libz.so.1 => /usr/lib/libz.so.1 (0x00007f47f8292000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007f47f8271000)
        libc.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (0x00007f47f80a5000)
        libncursesw.so.6 => /usr/lib/libncursesw.so.6 (0x00007f47f8030000)
        /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 => /usr/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
