As I remember that was about 1.6 Mb but with win32 widgetset. Gtk2 
widgetset need much work to achieve the same results (as you should 
remember the main problem is code like If someobject is TSomeLCLClass 
then ....).

Also we can split resources to add between widgetsets. For example os x 
widgetsets does not need drag cursors because they are built in. Gtk 
does not need various button images because of the same reason.
