> I have a server running Solaris10 and bind9.3.6 compiled with gcc3.3.2. The build was done with ./configure, make. The image size seems rather large at 10637668 bytes vs 4459328 bytes on a different Solaris10 system. Any ideas about the image size difference?

was bind built by hand on the different Solaris10 system? if it's stock
(can't recall if there's a SUNWbind or whatever package), the binary is
probably stripped.

man strip for more details.
