What I did is:
- followed their installation instructions
- just for fun, tried once in my life to lunch open-office on a PDA :)
- played with localepurge (apt-get install localepurge) and many apt-get
remove and apt-get clean, to make space to install ocaml & co

But you can provide your own debian tree or disk-image to the easy-debian
scripts (I did not try but they say so).

no I even removed all X11 packages.

And also camlmix and bracetax from sources.
