Why is libgtk1.2-1.2.3-1 bloating dynamically linked binaries (was: Why is libc-2.1.*.so not stripped?)

Ok, its not libc that is at fault. I had used the same Makefile and linked
hello with the same libraries as the gtk application.

removing -lgdk from the list of libraries reduces the size to reasonable 5k

What is wrong with libgtk1.2 that it bloats binaries compiled dynamically
against it? The 1.2.3-0.slink1 version does it right. The 1.2.3-1 version
bloats the hello world program


Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
