I would expect that each .oct file would be a few hundred kilobytes.
That's what I see on a DEC Alpha running Digital Unix.  They are
somewhat smaller on my Linux system.  In neither case are the .oct
files stripped, and they were both built with -g.  I assume they would
be smaller if built without -g or if stripped, but I'm not sure
stripping shared libraries will work on all systems.

When you built egcs, did you use --enable-shared as an argument to
