I'm trying to reduce the size of a kernel. I'm NOT interested in
performance, rather I want to make it fit in main memory in a smaller
form. Does anyone have any compiler suggestions to make for this.
The optimizing option doesn't really help in reducing the size.

I'm compiling a C AIX kernel on a 386 based machine.

please e-mail

and make tables smaller. Code optimizers don't make that much size
difference. -John]
