With XFree86 3.1.2:

9       /usr/X11R6/lib/libXtst.so.6.0
31      /usr/X11R6/lib/libXi.so.6.0
35      /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6.0
38      /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6.0
51      /usr/X11R6/lib/libXIE.so.6.0
56      /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.so.4.7
82      /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so.6.0
83      /usr/X11R6/lib/libXmu.so.6.0
247     /usr/X11R6/lib/libPEX5.so.6.0
256     /usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw.so.6.0
305     /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6.0
582     /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6.0
742     /usr/X11R6/lib/libMagick.so.3.7.7

About 2.5 megabytes in total.

It would be nice to have a stub library of a few kilobytes, since
there are cases where 2.5 MB is too much. But those cases are
pretty rare, so I think we can live with the current situation.
