Big honkin' binutils

I finally got through a nasty problem with binutiles in chapter 6 
of the cvs (that caveat about bash 2.0.5b should be in the FAQ!) and I 
notice that although the shared library version of ld and as are half the 
size of the static version, they're still 5 times as large as their counterparts that came with RH 7.3 - 307976 for ld and 227912 
for as 2.11.93, vs. 1041757 for ld and 1648032 for as  Are the 
two versions that much different, or is this because (per the instructions) 
I disabled all optimzation overrides, or did I screw something else up?

Not complaining, since at least it worked without the accursed segfault.
