Application under VxWorks - looking for suggestions

Hello,
we'd like to port one of our application to a VxWorks embedded
appliance. The system will run on a MIPS CPU based board with up to 16MB
of RAM, will be diskless, and will have a 100Mbit Ethernet adapter. The
application will be an analog to voip gateway.
I'm starting to cross compile Erlang for VxWorks, and I looking for tips
and hints to speed from people on the list who maybe already did that.
I'm looking for creating a stripped down version of Erlang and OTP
(there are a lot of goodies in OTP that I don't need) in order to
minimize RAM requirements, and will follow the SAE guidelines for
creating a standalone distribution. I see that the biggest chunk in SAE,
apart from the BEAM vm is the standard library. Given that I will only
use a small subset of stdlib, is it safe to strip down the modules I
don't need?
