There have been discussions on various forums about increased
executable size and in particular, compile time, pretty much
since gcc-3.1 was in beta.  Exe will be bigger than 2-95, even 
after stripping.

You can get more context on this at the gcc lists:

http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/

and

http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-help/

For many folks I work with, the biggest size adder is iostream..
Of course, most of them are worried about "Hello World".
