yep, same on a Debian 3.x system; but I doubt the perlcc-reduced binary
would be much better than the plain .pl: I tried
perlcc sanitizer.pl -o sanitizer.c -c
and got a ~7MB sanitizer.c (!)
which - just for fun - I tried to gcc-compile; on a 512MB RAM + 256 MB swap
pc gcc got killed due to vm exhaustion. Then I tried with +1GB swapfile
but got endless list of unreferences.
perlcc might do a better job doing the binary directly, but it got stuck
as above despite any -I, -L I tried. So I gave up.
