On Ubuntu Server 8.04 64 bit I have previously installed binutils
in order to install Oracle,
now I want to get rid of binutils because of the security threat
that it posses, but the question is if oracle will fucntion properly if I will remove these packages ?

root@deb02:/home/dragos# apt-get remove binutils

  libc6-dev-i386
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  alien binutils build-essential debhelper dpkg-dev g++ g++-4.2 g++-4.2-multilib gcc gcc-4.2 gcc-4.2-multilib
  libstdc++6-4.2-dev libtool

After this operation, 35.0MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n
Abort.


Is it safe to remove gcc gcc-4.2 gcc-4.2-multilib g++ g++-4.2 g++-4.2-multilib ?


Thank you.

Everything will work fine, you'll just need to re-add them for patch updates.
