Can't see it in trunk. Is it from an optional package?

Brought trunk up to date, compiled with 2.6.0. FPC itself is compiled 
with -O- -gl, ld is version 2.20.1.

On Linux x86 (Debian "Squeeze") with gtk2, freshly-created minimal 
project with full optimisation, no debug, optimise for minimum size and 
smart linking comes to 3,459,960 bytes.

That's... such a disparity from what I've been told to expect that I'd 
appreciate any suggestions as to where I should be looking for problems.
