I still have an old PC with an ISA Sound Blaster AWE 64 sound card (with
12MB sample RAM expansion board) and an ISA Gravis Ultrasound PnP card
(with 8MB sample RAM), currently mdv 2008.1 is installed on it and I still
use it occasionally for specific purposes.

I would assume that in 'poorer' countries this hardware is still common
enough that we should include those packages. As long as it builds, why
