That is still several times larger than bmf (which supports three backends

How did you compile bogofilter?  Compiling version 0.7.4 with an empty
CFLAGS (no debug, no optimizations) gives me this:

-rwxr-xr-x    1 tommy    tommy     1467629 Oct 16 11:51 bogofilter

Using -O2 gives a negligible improvement.  And it's still linked with
libJudy.so, which is:

-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     staff      138576 Oct 16 11:46 libJudy.so
