pkg_info -Ss gkrellm1 --> 37,983,547
pkg_info -Ss gkrellm2 --> 60,180,905
This is a ~60% increase, mostly because gtk2+ is 340% larger than gtk+
(yes, that much). This is a large increase, but if someone already has
37 MB to spend on such a thing as GKrellM (20MB of them are from perl),
I guess 60 MB is not a problem.
About memory footprint, I don't think it has changed a lot. The gkrellm
process on my station is about 9 MB (RES) after start-up.
