dlltool & memory hoggage

I wondered whether anyone's had a look at why dlltool consumes so much
VM when executing? When building DLLs with 100s (and in some cases
1000s) of exported entry points, I'm seeing images that often are >
50M in size (this is with both B20.1's dlltool.exe and one built from
the latest binutils src snapshot.)

Before I have a go at trying to chase this one down, I'd be very
interested to hear from people that have investigated this one already
and what the findings were.
