I don't know. How should I find out, read the Makefile? :-) Doesn't
the stage-1 get stripped? I'm not a GCC developer, I'm a 'user.'

Yes, they're a lot smaller. Are you suggesting the filesystem size is
just holes in the file? I would want to know what data is in there.
Think of this as a security audit.
