So two binaries should be almost same size.

I don't know why but I feel that just your `' is too big (and broken?)

I don't know why, either. But this is a clean, default remake of the package, from scratch.

I would be happy to provide the entire log from 'make install' if it would help.

One more point of information:

The old 'memtestplus' image is the same version as the newer broken images. Both are

        # strings /memtestplus | grep 'test86 '
              Memtest86  v4.20

so whatever the problem is, it would seem to be a change in the pkgsrc build environment, and not in memtest itself.

And yet one more potentially useful datum.

Looking at the binary pre-built packages on, I find the same "size problem" with the amd64 package. Yet the i386 package of the same vintage appears correct, with both files very close in size.

So is it maybe a problem on amd64, trying to build a 32-bit package?
