yeah, i'm coming to the conclusion that shared libs are *rather*
slower than statically linked binaries...

it could be that the implementation needs some *serious*

There's also the possibility that, if your libs and binaries aren't
made properly, you could be eating *more* vm than before.
If the last time you built the world, you saw lots of warnings
about the "rrs relocations" or whatever, this could definitely be
the case...
