I used this from an older lfs build:

-r-xr-xr-x    1 root     root       431171 Jun  2 16:45 
libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so                    

I just rebuilt on  a newer system with libc++-4.0.0.  That wasn't the 
problem.  The problem is that the default CXXFLAGS in the fluxbox 
src/Makefile uses -g for debugging.  With -g, the directory is 22M. 
 Without (and also without -DNLS), the directory is 5.1M.  We might want 
to comment on the use of debugging symbols in this package.
