<<This is a significant regression from 2.95.2. Fortunately, it does seem to
come from some linker issue which I hope to figure out, but be assured this
kind of problem is very serious.
I really can't agree that a 2% difference in object size is a significant
regression. Optimization is a trade off between size and execution speed,
and you may well get variations in this range from one version of a compiler
An embedded system with only 2% headroom is an abomination.
As for fitting on a floppy, that really entirely marginal. it sounds like
you have been desparately close the floppy limit for a while, and at this
stage nothing gets distributed on floppies anyway.
