As I told you: We auto-generate a lot of code that was
hand-written in 3.0. The autogenerated stuff contains a lot
of boilerplate code that used to be not there. You might
want to look at the size of librpc/gen_ndr/. This very
likely is most of what was not there before.

I would highly appreciate patches to put the
librpc/gen_ndr/ndr*.o stuff into a shared library to reduce
the overall code size.
