The 21.x source distribution includes almost 9.9 MB of C code, which
compiled into a 2.2 MB stripped temacs executable on my platform (plus
0.3 MB of lib-src utilities).  That compares to 22.7 MB of Emacs Lisp
and 15.7 MB of byte-compiled Lisp in the distribution, of which 2.6 MB
was dumped into the 4.8 MB emacs executable.  So a fresh emacs is about
46% C and 54% Lisp.
