I was curious so I downloaded and did a ./config --prefix=/usr 
*--enable-kde --enable-gnome* && make.
My optimizations are -march=i686 -O3 and I do have combreloc set as default.

I got:

[root at lfs3 ~]# ll -h fluxbox-0.1.10.tar.bz2
-rw-------    1 root     root         298k Aug  9 17:52 

[root at lfs3 ~]# du -sh fluxbox-0.1.10
5.1M    fluxbox-0.1.10

Quite a bit smaller than 21.6M.  I also got:

[root at lfs3 ~/fluxbox-0.1.10/src]# ll -h fluxbox
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         582k Aug  9 17:55 fluxbox

I think we need to reexamine this again.
