Try running a "make build" with a dynamic libcc1, and then one with a
compiler using a static libcc1.  I bet you'd find a *big* time savings on
the latter, particularly on vax -- and I'm running some benchmarks to see.

The disk space issue is one thing, but it needs to be weighed against a
more important issue to most -- compile speed.
