After compiling sage-7.6 from source, I get a folder of size 8.6 GB. I'd like to keep just the files necessary to run sage, but there is no "make clean". How can I purge unneeded files?

On a related note, the file contains instructions for sage --bdist, which appears to have been removed for quite some time. Who might I ask to have that text removed?

See for the "sage --bdist" issue.

You could try "make micro_release" to eliminate some unneeded files.
