As you say, it doesn't work any more.  I tried that with various commands on
two machines (2.6.11 and 2.4.something) and consistently got this:

        Average shared text size (kbytes): 0
        Average unshared data size (kbytes): 0
        Average stack size (kbytes): 0
        Average total size (kbytes): 0
        Maximum resident set size (kbytes): 0
        Average resident set size (kbytes): 0

because would be exactly the sort of information I'm looking for.
