Ok, I tried it without -frepo, and you're absolutely right -- the
binary is bigger, but only by 277 bytes!
It occurs to me that the the difference might be to various template
functions which are defined, but not ever used -- I assume there would
be one copy of such functions in the executable without -frepo, but
-frepo would avoid compiling them entirely.
I don't know the cause of the the bloat behavior which originally
induced me to start using -frepo, but it seems to be gone now.
Anyway, it still might be a bug in -frepo, but obviously I'm a lot happier.
Many thanks for cluing me in about this!
