Additionally if you need to save space, you can use the strip utility:
iptables (orig) 64486 bytes
#strip -s iptables
iptables (stripped) 56612 bytes
Yea! 87.8% of the original size!
(I used gcc 3.4.1 2004-6-11 on iptables-1.2.11 2004-8-12 snapshot)
There are a number of other ways to easily cut the size down much
smaller and keep the same functionality.
