 Tips for a small system:
 
-The following are set in options.h
-
-- You can safely disable blowfish and twofish ciphers, and MD5 hmac, without
-  affecting interoperability
+If you only want server functionality (for example), compile with
+	make PROGRAMS=dropbear
+rather than just
+	make dropbear
+so that client functionality in shared portions of Dropbear won't be included.
+The same applies if you are compiling just a client.
 
-- If you're compiling statically, you can turn off host lookups

+The following are set in options.h:
 
-- You can disable either password or public-key authentication, though note
-  that the IETF draft states that pubkey authentication is required.

-- Similarly with DSS and RSA, you can disable one of these if you know that
-  all clients will be able to support a particular one. The IETF draft
-  states that DSS is required, however you may prefer to use RSA. 
-  DON'T disable either of these on systems where you aren't 100% sure about
-  who will be connecting and what clients they will be using.

-- Disabling the MOTD code and SFTP-SERVER may save a small amount of codesize

-- You can disable x11, tcp and agent forwarding as desired. None of these are
-  essential, although agent-forwarding is often useful even on firewall boxes.

 If you are compiling statically, you may want to disable zlib, as it will use
 a few tens of kB of binary-size (./configure --disable-zlib).
