> Has bit bloat finally set into the VAX port?

For fun, I checked some generic kernel sizes for VAX.....

32V                         59528

4.2BSD                     291840

4.3BSD                     407552

4.3BSD-Quasijarus(1999)    484352

NetBSD-1.2                      ?

NetBSD-1.3                 865218

NetBSD-1.4                1015803

NetBSD-1.5                1402255

Are we bloating a bit around the seams...(:+}}...

Yeah, I know, it is only important for MVII critters and odd
stray 11/730's, but my, how we have grown.....

I pine for the light dainty crispness of a 4.3BSD, for example,
especially on something as slow as an MVII or even an MV3100/10
kind of box.

What is the bloat due to, gccisms?
