Yes, I wasn't questioning why some of it was included.

It used to go to 60-70KB.  nm on a simple binary gave ~300 lines.
nm on a current binary gives an extra 1000+ lines and includes lots
of things which, to my eye, look completely unnecessary.

Why are things like NIS stuff getting included?  e.g.  _yp_bind, _yp_check
What about RPC stuff, etc.?
