Heh, no.  That is a crunch.  It has the object code for _all_ of those
binaries in it.  So /stand/rm will remove a file just like the normal rm:

usage: rm [-f | -i] [-dPRrvW] file ...
       unlink file

It isn't that big:

> file $owd/sysinstall
/usr/obj/usr/src/sbin/sysinstall/sysinstall: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel
80386, version 1 (FreeBSD), statically linked, not stripped
> ll !:1
ll /usr/obj/usr/src/sbin/sysinstall/sysinstall
-rwxrwxr-x  1 john  src  899374 Jan 11 14:06

The stripped version is about 840k, which isn't but so bad.  That is if it
lives in /sbin (which I vote for).  The dynamic version if it goes in /usr/sbin
would be smaller again.
