  • That is what you expect with static linking, is it not? I'm not sure you could say there's anything "wrong."

    • 4000x increase?! That's a meaty runtime! 16K, 32K or 64K would be what I would have expected.
      • I presume it's linking in libc.a. Here are some libc.a sizes on systems I have access to at the moment:

        • Cygwin: 781142 bytes
        • SunOS 5.8: 1790056 bytes
        • Sparc64 Linux: 2825144 bytes
        • ix86 Linux: 2233342 bytes

        Maybe that's a lot larger than it was back in the day, but it seems about right to me.
