I see this:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 150666 Nov 26 06:24 nbmake
Now..That's non-stripped but stripping it brings it down to 130k or so.
In any case, 150k != 29M that I can tell. Are you sure you're looking in
the right place?

Only if it's at the front of your path or before your system dirs (ala
/usr/bin, /bin, etc). That's gonna break much much more than just your
toolchain build long run. If you have . at the end (still not a good idea
in general) then everything builds fine (which I just tested).
