Binary sizes executable on Mac OS X?
Message ID:
Looking at the Perl 5.8 and higher executables on my iBook, I noticed 
something odd:

  1009636 perl5.8.1-threaded
  1014388 perl5.8.1-unthreaded
  1013816 perl5.8.2-threaded
  1018568 perl5.8.2-unthreaded
  1009908 perl5.8.3-threaded
  1014656 perl5.8.3-unthreaded
  1038056 perl5.9.0-threaded
  1042904 perl5.9.0-unthreaded

The "unthreaded" executables are consistently _larger_ than the 
"threaded" executables.

On Linux, this is quite the opposite and more in line what I would expect.

I wonder how this could come to be.  Seems like either somethings 
strange is happening with the threaded version (something missing) or 
the unthreaded version (unneccesary bloat?).
