All you have to do is change line 18 to Dev6, and lines 30-33 with the
6.4 values (6.4.0svn;grass64)

I'm sure you're right, I think I saw Qt4 and other QGIS things which
GRASS doesn't need if I remember correctly. These all end up in the
extrabin and extralib directories. I didn't want to write each
individual file in the Packager script by hand, but maybe we'll have
to in order to avoid "bloat".
